    您好!

    boundaries 是 boundary 的複數型,一般解釋為「邊界、分界線」或「界限、範圍」的意思,例如:

    The river is the boundary between the two countries.

    這條河是兩國的分界線。

    With the advance in science, the boundaries of human knowledge are being pushed further out.

    隨著科學的發展,人類知識的範圍在不斷擴大。

    而「桎悎」的念法為 ㄓˋ ㄍㄨˋ,意指腳鐐和手銬,比喻束縛人或事物的東西。
