Scare quotes are one of my favorite things about writing (and sometimes even used when speaking). They can lend many different nuanced meanings to various, otherwise mundane words.
I had a good time in the meeting yesterday. <---- ok, that’s cool
I had a good time in the “meeting” yesterday. <---- debaucherous!
I had a “good” time in the meeting yesterday. <----sounds like you didn’t have a good time at all.
Do other languages have an equivalent of “scare quotes?”
