- For Teachers
Everywhere she looked it seemed the turnfins were about, swooping and squawking—like the holograms she’d seen of crying gulls as they followed ocean-bound ships.
what is the meaning of "ocean-bound"?
NOT A TEACHER
(1) In English, if you put -bound after a noun, it means that something
is headed for that noun.
(a) For example, most secondary school graduates in the
United States are college-bound. (= they are going to college
after they graduate.)
(b) People who do not get a good education are failure-bound in
today's world. ( = they are not going to have a good life, for they
will not be able to get a good job. Of course, there are
always exceptions. Some people have rich or influential parents,
so their parents will take care of them. But ordinary people
really need to know something. Then they will be success-bound
