## 「Sum」の類語とその違い

Q: sum up と summarize はどう違いますか？
A: Summarize means to make a summary - take something large, and make it small.
"He summarized the book."
"To summarize, the article says you should feed your dog natural food so it is healthier." (About reading an article on which dog foods are good and bad for a dog.)

To sum up is to come to a conclusion, or to end something.
(After telling a story about how someone's bike was stolen) "To sum it up, I should have bought a better bike lock."
The difference here is that "sum (it) up" is referring to what the person learned, and it is the end of what they are saying. It is similar to the phrase "in conclusion".
"Summarize" is just taking the most important information from something, and making it shorter.
Q: a sum of money と an amount of money はどう違いますか？
A: They both have very similar meanings but
sum of money: a certain quantity
He needs to pay the sum of £100

amount of money: more general and used more often. Doesn't specify how much.
He needs to pay an amount of money.
Q: ①A tidy sum と ②A tidy sum of と ③A tidy amount of はどう違いますか？
A: Tidy's original meaning as an adjective is meant to describe things being clean and in their proper order.

In slang talk you might hear it used as a word to describe things or even people being good or desirable.

"Did you see her?"

"Yeah she was tidy"

From this we can see tidy can also give the impression of being pleasing to the eyes

Knowing this, we can return to "a tidy sum" and see that it gives the image of a neat pile of money, large enough to be jealous of, or proud of owning.

A tidy sum generally does refer specifically to money. Your second and third sentences have approximately the same meaning and can be swapped with no problem :)
Q: ①A tidy sum と ②A tidy sum of と ③A tidy amount of はどう違いますか？
A: "a tidy sum" just means a large extent or amount

1) A tidy sum is usually dealt with money, but it can be used with different things too like "a tidy sum of fish" or "a tidy sum of books"

2) Yes, you can switch it with "a lot of", just make sure you actually do have "a lot of" it

3) Yes, they can be used apart from money. I gave examples up there, but here are more:
-"a tidy sum of apples"
-"a lot of apples"
-"a tidy amount of apples"
-"a tidy sum of pencils"
-"a lot of pencils"
-"a tidy amount of pencils"
-"a tidy sum of happiness"
-"a lot of happiness"
-"a tidy amount of happiness"

You can use these phrases with any noun.

But, it's more common to say, "have a lot of" or "have many." :)
Q: sum と number はどう違いますか？
A: Sum = toàn bộ = 1+2=3
Number = con số = 123456789

Q: That pretty much sums up what's going on with my life currently. この表現は自然ですか？
A: What’s currently going on in my life.
Q: To sum up... この表現は自然ですか？
A: (Where did my answer go? I tried to post. Sorry if it double posts.)
Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to work the microphone on my new computer.

Now that I know what you're saying, I can understand it just fine; but I listened three times and couldn't understand it without seeing it written, so clearly there is room for improvement.

One simple fix would be to remove the word "some," which doesn't add much here.

My sense is that you need a little more tension in the vowel of the -ly of clearly, but I am far from certain about that.

By the way, I disagree about "as a summary" and "to sum it up," neither of which sounds at all natural to me here.
