In the following sentence:


I understand the meaning before the bold part, which tells a student stocked money for job searching. But what does the bold part mean and how can I breat down the components grammatically? 专门 likely means the speciality of jobs, but then the sentence doesn't make sense for me...

  • 专门 - specially
  • 用 - use ("used" here)
  • 来 - for
  • 找工作 - job searching/seeking

So the whole sentence means "(the stocked money) is used for job searching specially".

    Ah that makes sense! I thought 专门 refers to the speciality of jobs, which made me confused. Thanks.

  • @Blaszard put that in your question - so we know what you're struggling with - otherwise it seems a bit like a straightforward translation request.

Translating the word "专门" into exclusively might be more close to the original means in this scenario .
