Explanation:
'...related and devoted to its (her) object/purpose'


'verknocht' in your context sounds a bit strange.


You use 'verknocht' when you're really devoted to something or someone (e.g. a devoted couple).

Should be in any dictionary.

Thank you for the prompt reply. I had found it in the dictionary, it's just, as you say, it seems a bit of an odd choice in the context. Oh well, if that's what it says...
