    earnings 是 名 詞 , 必 是 複 數 (pl) 加 s, 是 指 工 資 , 薪 水 ; 所 賺 的 錢 。

    根 據 辭 典 , 如 要 指 收 入 , 不 能 用 earning.

    要 當 動 詞 那 就 是 earn

    earning 和 earnings 都是名詞, 前者是單數形, 後者是複數形. 根據 Longman 美式英語字典上的解釋, 具有兩個意含:

    (1) the money that you can earn by working

    (2) the profit that a company makes

    簡單的說也就是 "收入" 或 "利潤" 的意思. 使用時, 就視所要表達的意思, 來選擇使用單數形或複數形. 不過, 一般說來, 複數形比較常見.

    ex1: A number of youngers live beyond their earnings.

    ex2: With the economic recession, many companies gain a few earnings.
