Bound to? Bound for? Which One Is Correct?

 



Bound to or Bound For?

Some ESL (English as a Second Language) students sometimes make mistakes in the preposition. Again, because prepositions are tricky, a change in the preposition can change the meaning.

Simply remember it this way: Bound to + Verb, Bound For + Noun.

Bound to + Verb simply means “It is certain/It is sure to happen.”

Example: With your lack of business sense, your business is bound to fail.

This young man is so hardworking. He is bound to succeed in life.

Bound for + Noun

If the noun is a place, bound for means the destination.

Example:

This plane is bound for Osaka.

If the noun is another  noun, it means destined (destiny).

Example:

This young child has a lot of acting potentials. She is bound for stardom.

Compare:

Sentence 1: This young man is so hardworking. He is bound to succeed.

Sentence 2: This young man is so hardworking. He is bound for success.

 

JAPANESE TRANSLATION: by: Google Translate

 一部のESL(第二言語としての英語)の生徒は、前置詞を間違えることがあります。繰り返しますが、前置詞はトリッキなので、前置詞を更すると意味がわる可能性があります。

次のようにえておいてください。+動詞にバインド、+名詞にバインド。

Bound to + Verb simply means “It is certain/It is sure to happen.”

+動詞にバインドされているということは、に「確である/必ず起こる」という意味です。

例:With your lack of business sense, your business is bound to fail.

This young man is so hardworking. He is bound to succeed in life.

+名詞にバインド

名詞が場所の場合、バインドは目的地を意味します。

例:

This plane is bound for Osaka.

 名詞が別の名詞である場合、それは運命(運命)を意味します。

例:

This young child has a lot of acting potentials. She is bound for stardom.

 比較:

Sentence 1: This young man is so hardworking. He is bound to succeed.

Sentence 2: This young man is so hardworking. He is bound for success.
