English in a Minute – Dough:金钱

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

Dough is a mixture of water and flour used to make baked goods.

But how else do Americans use this word?

Aw, man! I just realized I don't have enough money to buy another Sevendust face covering.

Sevendust is your favorite band.

I can send you some dough. How much do you need?

That would be great! I only need $20.

$20 for a face mask?!

I have to buy their new album, too!

In this case, "dough" means money.

Americans use other food-related words to talk about money, too, like "bread," "bacon" and even "cheese."

I'm suddenly very hungry!

And that's English in a Minute!
