3 关于涉及金钱时extra与more的表达问题

新概念 2 15 课一个关于涉及金钱时extramore如何表达的问题

课文最后一句: I would receive an extra thousand pounds a year.

如果用more来替换extra的话,书中课后习题12题提供的方式是£1,000 a year more,即one thousand pounds a year more

但这样读起来似乎不是很顺畅,可否按照我们常说的"数字+more+名词" 的表达方式写成 one thousand more pounds a year

望高手指教!

倾向于把答案one thousand pounds a year more中的more解释为副词,释义为 additionally; in addition (此释义可参考网站主页The Free Dictionary),而非形容词 additional; extra 之义。所以,从语意理解,似可这样:

1) I would receive an extra (adj.) thousand pounds a year.

2) I would receive a thousand more (adj.) pounds a year.

3) I would receive a thousand pounds a year extra (adv.) /additionally.

4) I would receive a thousand pounds a year more (adv.). (如答案句)

个人理解,仅供参考。

1. I would receive £1,000 a year more是正常的表述,没有问题。下面的例句摘自时代周刊和经济学人杂志:

      We would provide $600 million a year more for schools.

      As a result, the importing world will lave to spend about $35 billion a year more for the same quantity of oil.

     These cost billions of dollars to build and tens of millions a year more to run. 

当然也可以把more用在数量之后。如:

    If Kerry's tax increase were law, the average family would pay $657 more a year.  

据初步观察,在币种用符号表示的情况下这两种用法比例接近。

2. 即使币种不用符号,直接用英文名称,more也可置于句末。例如:

This country could probably be making several billion dollars a year more if it were willing to sell to just anybody.

    A successful term in the West Wing can mean a couple of million dollars a year more in salary and consulting fees, an insider estimates.

我认为£1,000 a year more应该是£1,000  more a year  即one thousand more pounds a year。如:We need five more chairs. 我们还需要五把椅子。(《朗文当代高级英语辞典》第6版)

我觉得在此句式中,似乎这样说更多见:I would receive 1000 pounds more a year. 相比而言,1000 more pounds a year (罕用),1000 pounds a year more(罕用).外刊例句:
