词义辨析

n. (名词)
expense, cost, outlay
  • 这三个名词的共同意思是“花费,费用”。其区别是:
  • 1.cost指为获得或生产某物所费的金额,是时间、劳力等的总计。一般指日常生活的开销,也可指劳力、服务等的“费用”“花费”; expense则含有较不确定的意味,泛指“费”“费用”; 而outlay则指为一定目的而花费的金额。例如:
  • She built the house without regard to cost.她盖这房子根本不在乎花多少钱。
  • The expense of a good education is great.受到好的教育需要一大笔费用。
  • We need a large outlay on scientific research.我们需要科学研究的大量费用。
  • 2.cost和outlay既可用作动词,又可用作名词,而expense只能用作名词,其动词形式为expend。
  • 词源解说

    • ☆ 14世纪晚期进入英语,直接源自近代拉丁语的expensa,意为花费,消费,消耗。
