“The yard is surrounded by a fence.”
“There’s no escape! We’re surrounded by enemies!”

“Surround” often appears in the passive voice. It means that something is present on all sides. If you put speakers on every side of the room, you can have “surround sound”.


Surroundはよく受身形で使われます。自分を囲んですべての面に何かがあるという意味です。部屋の各側にスピーカーを置くと、surround sound(左右だけではなく各方面から音が聞こえてくる臨場感のある音)を体験できます。
