pay的详细讲解:

词语用法

  1. pay作及物动词,后面可直接跟宾语,但一般是表示钱,账单或人的词。如果要表示为某事或某物付钱时,需要用介词for或是to的不定式来引导。

    I will pay for that book.
    He paid us to watch his house.

  2. 在美国,pay可作形容词,表示“付费的”或是“收费的”,例如pay hospital(收费的医院)和pay patient(付费的病人);
  3. pay后可接介词by,表示“由……支付”。

    Their nursing costs are paid by the Government.
    他们的护理费用由政府来支付。

  4. pay bills表示“付帐”,pay homage to a person表示“向某人表示敬意”,pay tribute to a person表示“赞扬某人”。
v.(动词)
  1. pay的基本意思是“付给”“付出”,指某人买东西或做某事所花费的金钱。引申可表示为“给予”。
  2. pay既可用作及物动词,也可用作不及物动词。用作不及物动词时,多作“合算,值得”解; 用作及物动词时,其搭配范围比较窄,主语只能是人,宾语常是人、钱或账单,而不能是其他物品,如果其客体是物品,则须用for引导。可用于被动结构。
  3. pay可接双宾语,其间接宾语可转化为介词to的宾语。也可接由动词不定式或副词充当补足语的复合宾语。
n.(名词)
  1. pay是不可数名词,意思是“工资,薪水”,指工作所得到的酬金,也可特指发给军人的薪饷,强调付了钱,不如salary和wages正式。

词义辨析

v.(动词)
pay, pay for
pay和pay for都表示“付钱”,其区别在于:当表示为所买的东西付钱时,一般用pay for,后面接表示货物的名词; 当表示向某人付款时,一般用pay,后面接表示受款人的名词。例如:
Will you pay the waiter?你愿意付钱给侍者吗?
We refused to pay them their wages.我们拒绝付给他们工资。
I'll pay for my ticket.我将为我的票付款。
How much did you pay for the book?那本书你付了多少钱?
pay down, pay up
这两个短语的意思不同,前者的意思是付一部分款,后者是全部付清。例如:
He paid $500 down and agreed to pay the rest in monthly installments.他先付500美元,余款答应分月支付。
If you don't pay up,I'll resort to the law.如果你不全部还清,我就要诉诸法律了。
下面短语的意思不同:
  • pay one's way 自食其力
  • pay one's own way 自己付自己的账
pay attention to,pay one's attentions to
两者的意思不同。其区别在于:pay attention to的意思是“注意,留心”, pay one's attentions to的意思则是“向…献殷勤,向…求婚”。后者中的attentions用复数形式,前面还有物主代词, to后接人。例如:
You should pay more attention to your health.你应多加注意你的身体。
The newspapers report that at the moment he is paying his attentions to an Italian countess.报纸报道说当时他正在追求一位意大利女伯爵。
pay, compensate, indemnify, reimburse, remunerate, satisfy
这组词均可表示“报偿”。其区别在于:
1.pay的基本意思是“偿还债务”,引申可表示多种意思,不一定指实际上的“金钱”。
2.compensate强调用相等的金钱或者价值相当的东西来“赔偿”失去的东西或“酬劳”他人付出的劳力。例如:
Many firms compensate their workers if they are hurt at work.许多公司都对工作时受伤的工人给予赔偿。
3.remunerate暗示或许诺要给予“报答”,但不一定兑现。例如:
I will remunerate you my debt for gratitude.我要报答我对你的感激之情。
We only hope we can remunerate you for the pleasure you have given us.我们只希望能够报答你给我们带来的快乐。
4.satisfy特指依据法律或法庭的判决加以“赔偿”,以满足其要求或还清某种债务。例如:
He had to satisfy all claims for the damage he had caused.他必须赔偿他造成的所有损失。
We are never late in satisfying him for his labour.我们从不延误付给他劳动报酬。
5.reimburse专指为他人报销办事时的花销。例如:
All expenses will be reimbursed to the customer for any loss or damage.一切费用都能给你报销。
6.indemnify指允诺或实际赔偿损失,但赔偿额不一定同损失额持平。例如:
Their former enemies indemnified the victorious nations for the huge loss.战胜国要求战败国交付巨额赔款。
pay, cost, spend, take
这组词的共同意思是“花费”,指某人买或做某事所花费的时间或金钱。其区别是:
1.spend和pay的主语只能是人; cost的主语是物或事; take后接时间时,主语也可以是人。此外,take和cost还可以用动词不定式或动词不定式短语作真实主语,而it为形式主语。例如:
I paid him $200 for this painting.我付他200美元买了这幅画。
She spent ten dollars shopping for food.她购买食品花了10美元。
The work cost me a lot of time and effort.这本著作花费了我大量的时间和精力。
We took a week to finish the work.我们花了一个星期完成这项工作。
It costs us a lot of money to build a house.盖房子花了我们很多钱。
It took me one year to read this book.我用一年时间读了这本书。
2.pay的搭配范围最窄,只接金钱; cost的搭配范围最宽,除接金钱和时间外,还可接劳力、精力、财富、健康、职位甚至生命等。例如:
“Are you paying cash?”“No,I will pay by cheque.”“你付现金吗?”“不,我用支票支付。”
Careless driving cost him his life.粗心大意地开车使他丧了命。
3.spend可接动名词,而cost, pay, take可接动词不定式。
4.spend, take, pay都可用于被动结构,而cost不能用于被动结构。
n.(名词)
pay, salary, wages
这组词都有“薪水”“工资”的意思。其区别在于:
1.pay是普通用词,不可数,意思是“工资,薪水”,指工作所得到的酬金,也可特指发给军人的薪饷,强调付了钱,不如salary和wages正式。
2.salary一般指脑力劳动者的月薪或年俸。例如:
He lived on his salary.他靠薪水生活。
The company pays good salary.这个公司的薪金高。
His regular salary doesn't come to much, but he gets bonuses too.他的固定薪水并不高,但他还有奖金。
3.wages多指体力劳动者按天或按周领取的工钱。例如:
Her wages are one hundred dollars a week.她的工资为每周100美元。
He takes his wages home to his wife every Friday.他每星期五把工资带回家交给妻子。
cost expend spend take pay
这些动词均含“花费”之意。
  • cost:cost指花费时间、金钱、劳力等。其主语是物,而不能由人充当,也不用被动形式。
  • expend:expend较正式用词,通常指为某一专门目的而花费大量金钱、时间或精力。
  • spend:spend普通用词,与cost基本同义,但主语必须是人。
  • take:take普通用词,指需要占用空间、时间或精力等,其主语可以是人,也可以是一件事情。

常见错误

v.(动词)
  1. 他付给我10元钱。

    He paid for me ten yuan .

    He paid me ten yuan.

    pay表示“付某人多少钱”时,接双宾语,间接宾语前不用介词for。

  2. 学生们在毕业前都要以某种方式向老师表示敬意。

    The students will pay their respects for the teachers in one way or another before leaving school.

    The students will pay their respects to the teachers in one way or another before leaving school.

  3. 晚辈要向长辈们致以问候,这是中国的传统。

    It is a tradition in China that the young generation should pay their respects for the old.

    It is a tradition in China that the young generation should pay their respects to the old.

    pay respect(s)之后接to,不可接for。但 have〔show〕 respect之后可以接to也可以接for。

  4. 经过十年的辛勤劳动,他们终于还清了债务。

    After ten years of hard work, they finally paid their debts.

    After ten years of hard work, they finally paid off their debts.

    pay off是“还清”的意思。而误句中没有off,只是说“还了债务”。

  5. 要多加注意你的发音。

    Much attention should be paid on your pronunciation.

    Much attention should be paid to your pronunciation.

    pay attention to为固定词组,表示“注意…”,表此义时不可说pay attention on。

  6. 你腋下夹的物品已付钱了吗?

    Have you paid the article under your arm?

    Have you paid for the article under your arm?

  7. 我已经为此付了100元。

    I have paid 100 yuan on it.

    I have paid 100 yuan for it.

    “付…的钱”“为…付钱”,要用pay for。

  8. 我还没付车钱。

    I haven't paid for the driver yet.

    I haven't paid the driver yet.

    当动词pay后面所跟是人或钱一类的名词时不需接for。

  9. 来吧,我给你买点饮料。

    Come on.I'll pay you a drink.

    Come on.I'll buy〔get〕 you a drink.

    表示“出钱请客人”时不用pay sb sth 结构,应该用buy或get。

  10. 他上个月借的书还了没有?

    Did he pay back the book he borrowed last month?

    Did he return the book he borrowed last month?

    “还钱”“还损坏的东西”用pay,“归还原物”应该用return。

n.(名词)
  1. 办公室工作人员中很少有人挣大钱的。

    Very few office workers get a good pay.

    Very few office workers get good pay.

    pay作“工资,薪水”解时是不可数名词,前面不能加a。

错句举例与错句分析
  • 错句:have you paid the skirt she bought you?

    纠正:have you paid for the skirt she bought you?

    翻译:你付了她给你买的裙子的钱吗?

    分析:pay如果要表示为某事或某物付钱时,需要用介词for来引导。
