The average pay in a workforce5 of 219 was £96,369, and the highest paid director earned £546,000.点击收听单词发音  1inaccurate   adj.错误的,不正确的,不准确的参考例句:The book is both inaccurate and exaggerated.这本书不但不准确,而且夸大其词。She never knows the right time because her watch is inaccurate.她从来不知道准确的时间因为她的表不准。2transcribed   (用不同的录音手段)转录( transcribe的过去式和过去分词 ); 改编(乐曲)(以适应他种乐器或声部); 抄写; 用音标标出(声音)参考例句:He transcribed two paragraphs from the book into his notebook. 他把书中的两段抄在笔记本上。Every telephone conversation will be recorded and transcribed. 所有电话交谈都将被录音并作全文转写。3investors   n.投资者,出资者( investor的名词复数 )参考例句:a con man who bilked investors out of millions of dollars 诈取投资者几百万元的骗子a cash bonanza for investors 投资者的赚钱机会4advert   vi.注意,留意,言及;n.广告参考例句:The advert featured a dolphin swimming around a goldfish bowl.该广告的
