While reading a novel by Robin Cook, I ran into the following passage.
"The reality was that you decided to move in on your own accord. Is that correct?"
I assumed that the phrase "on your own accord" is equivalent to the phrase "of my own accord". The only problem I have is that I can find "of one's own accord" in my dictionaries, but I cannot find "on one's own accord" in any of them, and it's hard to think that Mr. Cook coined the phrase. So, I guess it is dialectal usage, but I'm not sure.
Could you please shed some light on this?
Thanks for your help!
It is a standard use, meaning that it is my responsibility or decision that is behind the action.
