我們花了好幾個小時一家一家店去找一個皮夾 我能翻成We spent several hours finding a wallet from store to store嗎? 還有that連接的句子頭重腳輕的情形舉例?

We spent several hours (in) finding the wallet from store to store.（用the定冠詞才符合邏輯，the wallet = that wallet）
＝Finding the wallet from store to store took us several hours. （句子頭重腳輕，較不自然）
＝It took us several hours finding the wallet from store to store.（用虛主詞，句子較自然，動名詞片語finding ...是delayed subject）
That he had lied to us was unbelievable.（名詞子句當主詞）
= The fact that he had lied to us was unbelievable.（名詞子句當作主詞fact的同位語）
= It was unbelievable that he had lied to us.（將名詞子句移作delayed subject，加上虛主詞it，全句才不會頭重腳輕）
