expensive的详细讲解:

词语用法

adj.(形容词)
  1. expensive的基本意思是“昂贵的,费用大的”,指花费的时间多、金额高或精力大。在用于价格时,含有超过应有价值或超出购物者的购买能力的意味。
  2. expensive常用于修饰物,有时也可用于修饰人,此时多强调一个人的“衣着华丽”。

词义辨析

adj.(形容词)
expensive, costly, dear
这组词的共同意思是“高贵的”或“昂贵的”。其区别在于:dear指本身并不见得贵,但与同类物品的价格相比而显得“贵”; expensive指虽物有所值,但超出购买者支付能力的“贵”; costly则指物体本身“贵重”,因而价格“昂贵”,常引申指耗费的物质或精力很大。例如:
In the middle of the summer, fresh oranges are dear, but in the winter months they are cheap.仲夏时节的鲜桔很贵,但在冬季的几个月里却很便宜。
We indulged in an expensive supper after the concert.音乐会后我们尽情地享受了一顿昂贵的晚餐。
Selling your house can be a costly and time-consuming business.出售你的房子很可能是费钱耗时的事。
dear expensive costly
这些形容词都表示物品价格“高的,昂贵的”之意。
  • dear:dear侧重指要价过高,或远高于公道、合理的价格,其反义词是cheap。
  • expensive:expensive指物品的价格超过了它本身所值,或超过了购买者的支付能力。
  • costly:costly指物品价格高,通常是因物品稀少或珍贵所致。

常见错误

adj.(形容词)
  1. 这套衣服的价钱太贵了。

    The price of this suit of clothes is too expensive.

    The price of this suit of clothes is too high.

    This suit of clothes is too expensive.

    expensive意为“昂贵的,费用巨大的”,不可与price连用。

  2. 经营现代化的农场花钱不多。

    Modern farms aren't expensive to be developed.

    Modern farms aren't expensive to develop.

    Modern farms aren't expensive for us to develop.

    be expensive+to- v 结构中,不定式的主动形式有被动意义,所以不可用被动结构。

  3. 我在集邮簿里收藏了许多贵重的邮票。

    In my stamp album I have many highly-costed stamps.

    In my stamp album I have many expensive stamps.

    highly-costed意为“成本高”, expensive才是“有价值的,贵重的”的意思。
