Term 1: לְהוֹצִיא כֶּסֶף
A while ago I did an entry on expenses – הוֹצָאוֹת. To spend money or to create an expense is לְהוֹצִיא כֶּסֶף - literally, to take out money.
להוציאis an active-causative הִפְעִיל verb.
למשוךis an active-simple פָּעַל verb.
לבזבז is an active-intensive פִּעֵל verb.
Likewise, the noun form of לבזבז is בִּזְבּוּז. Thus, a waste of money is בזבוז כסף, a waste of time is בזבוז זְמַן, etc.
