Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?
Nobby realized that he would be forcibly thrown out any minute if he didn’t hurry and leave in his own accord. (E. Caldwell, “This Very Earth”)
I’m leaving, but I’ll leave when I’m ready, and of my own accord. (E. Caldwell, “Tragic Ground”)
of one’s own accord = voluntarily, without prompting or coercion
Thank you for your efforts.
