可是我在字典裡看到 take 也能用於「花多少錢」的意思上
例句: It took him a lot of money for him to buy a fur coat.
而且我去 http://pewebdic2.cw.idm.fr/ (朗文線上字典) 查
( [intransitive and transitive] if something takes a particular amount of time, money, effort etc, that amount of time etc is needed for it to happen or succeed: ) 但是沒給相關例句 那這樣子take真的可以用於 「花多少錢」上嗎? 拜託有研究的人解答一下
It took him a lot of money to buy her a fur coat.
這題我有拿去國外論壇發問，結果有一個美國人說可以用，但是用"It took him a lot of money to V..."是怪異的，應該用"It took a lot of money to V..."才行，原文如下，大家覺得呢?
Yes and no. To my ear, it is the word him that seems anomalous.
It took a lot of money to buy her a fur coat.
It seems to me that it is idiomatic to say
It takes/took a person a certain amount of time to do something.
*It takes/took a person a certain amount of money to do something.
On the other hand, it seems all right to say
It takes/took a certain amount of money to do something.
But if you mention specific amounts, it doesn't seem correct.
*It took $12 to buy that sweater.
You would just say: That sweater cost $12.

I don't know exactly what's the differences between a certain amount of money or a certain period of time. My professors didn't think it wrong while I wrote it in this way. Believe it or not, I don't really think it a big deal.Source(s): 自己, myself
