penny的详细讲解:

词语用法

n.(名词)
  1. penny是英国的货币单位,意为“便士”,在1971年前是1先令的1/12,在1971年后指一英镑的1/100。penny在美国和加拿大,还可作“美分”“加拿大分”解,相当于cent,复数形式均为pennies。penny引申还可表示“少量的钱”,一般用于否定句。
  2. penny的复数有两种形式:pennies和pence。在指钱数多少即“面值”时用pence,在指一个一个硬币时用pennies。
  3. “六便士硬币”是six pence,“6个一便士的硬币”是six pennies,“总共六便士”是six pence。
  4. 在非正式文体中尤其是口语里, penny可用缩略式p,且其单复数同形。
  5. penny指现行英国币制中面值为一便士的铜币,为一镑的百分之一,早先英国的币制是一镑=20先令,1先令=12便士。从1971年开始,英国实行新币制,1镑=100便士,并取消了先令这一货币单位。
  6. 在美国用pennies指数额,一般不用pence,因美国只有一分硬币,可称作penny,所以, three pennies为“三美分”,实际也是三枚一分硬币。一至四美分可用penny也可用cent,五美分以上一定要用cent。
  7. 表示面值数额从两便士以及二十便士,通常要把数字和pence连写,其他的数字与pence分开写,但现在越来越趋向于分开写。
