    in turn/keep in mind/bear in mind/hedge/a veiled admission

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    This "potential defect, in turn, may result in separation of the propeller shaft and its contact with the road surface, which threatens the loss of drivability.

    in turn = in the proper order or in sequence

    Each man in turn got up and spoke.

    Two teachers supervised the lunch hour in turn.

    Two of the three boys tease their younger brother - John, the biggest, teases Bob, the middle boy; and Bob in turn teases Tim, the youngest.

    in turn = according to a settled order; each following another

    "If we keep in mind the unpredictable nature of Russia's policy, we should not exclude the possibility that these weapons could be used for illicit purposes, which do not correspond to our
    values and principles," - said Defense Minister of Lithuania Rasa Jukneviciene, as quoted by Interfax.

    Bear in mind the rules of safety when you swim.

    keep in mind = bear in mind = remember

    You have to be home by 11 o'clock. Keep that in mind, Bob.

    Mary is studying hard with a good grade in mind.

    in mind = in the center of your thought; in your close attention
    Putin hedges on Mistral Purchase.

    hedge = avoid or try to avoid fulfilling, answering, or performing

    Heritage Foundation Russian scholar Ariel Cohen says the Russian decision to purchase the Mistral is a veiled admission of Russian weakness.

    veiled = concealed; undercover; covert

    admission = an acknowledgment of the truth of something

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
