Subject: Re: "it's all good"
I don't know whether it is very likely, but the expression "it's all good"
sounds a little bit like the German "Es ist schon gut" meaning
"it's OK", "you don't have to be sorry" and "don't mention it" to me.
"schon" means "already". I don't know whether it's possible to use
"all" instead of "already" in English. What I do know is that "all"
is used in Low Saxon to say "already".
I hope this is useful.
