    money

    --------

    When you buy a new computer, you usually get software included at no extra cost (= for no additional money).

    The show took $100 000 in its first week.

    I don't know how I managed to spend so much in the pub last night.

    Time

    -----

    I think we need to spend more time together.

    Take your time, mate.

    1. 花時間

    It took me 30 minutes to finish my homework.

    =I spent 30 minutes finishing/on my homework.

    2. 花錢

    It cost(三態同型) me 100 dollars buying that toy.

    =I spent 100 dollars buying/on that toy.

    以上是最常見的用法。spend兩個通殺,主詞用人,後面加V-ing或on;而花時間用take,花金錢用cost(s),主詞用it(雖然文法書上take有用人當主詞的,但一般不這麼說,且被視為不好的英文),後面加to-V。就這麼簡單。

    cost前面放的是你花錢買的東西

    It cost just a penny. (意指很便宜)

    絕對不能說 I cost.....錯錯錯....

    spend "前面"則是放"主詞"

    This little tiny thing cost me a lot= I spent a lot on this little tiny thing!

    但若是用在時間上

    只能把"主詞"放在spend之前

    I spent ages to finish this work.

    (我花了超久才完成這作業)

    Take 前面放 it 是最常見的...後面接時間

    It took me ages to finish.(我花了超久時間才完成的)

    spend 和 cost 都用在花錢上面

    但 差異在

    spend+Ving

    cost +to V

    而spend 和 take 則適用在花"時間"上面

    差異性跟上面一樣

    spend+Ving

    take +to V
