    out of bounds.

    Dear teachers,

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

    Sidelines and end lines are out of bounds.

    .
    out of bounds = beyond established limits, breaking the rules (a restricted area, a closed area)

    (This expression alludes to the boundaries of the playing area in numerous sports and to the rules applying to them.)


    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    You are definitely NOT out of bounds, Vil! Your interpretation is spot on!
