Did you look up "compound" in a dictionary? Take a look here and scroll down to Compound 2 (noun).
Student or Learner
I reallay have no idea what 'at the compound ' means.
The news was about the situation where Osama bin laden was found with the help of Parkistani Dr.
Here's a part of sentence in the news.
He helped to collect DNA to verify that Bin Laden was there at the compound in Abbottabad where US navy Seals found him.
'At the compound' is used to emphasize the palce Abbottabad here ?
I really don't know what it means and when to use it.
Please help me out
Thanks for your time in advance.
I looked at a just Compound 1. didn't realize that there were more meanings of compound in a dictionary and though that it is a kind of idiom or phase something.
How silly I was :(
Anyway, thank you very much.
You weren't silly at all, but you will probably remember next time you use a dictionary that English words frequently have more than one meaning so you need to read all possible definitions and see which one fits the context best. If you really can't find one that does, then of course asking here is a great alternative.
