about 'prone' I saw a sentence 'He is accident-prone'. I understand the meaning since I looked up the dictionary. Is it possible to make other expressions with 'prone'? For example, there is an expression, 'rain man' (雨男)which means that it rains every time he goes out. Can you say 'he is rain-prone'? Thank you. By the way, the movie Rain man is great. I watched three times.

"Rain-prone" is not an English expression, and it isn't common to make adjectives with "-prone". It's more common to use "prone to", such as: "She is prone to get angry over small matters." "Drunk drivers are more prone to traffic accidents." There is also the less common position of "prone" (face down), such as: "The victim was found lying in prone position."

Definitely, you can use it in many different sentences. Here are just a few examples: He was prone to anger. He was prone to getting excited. Young people are prone to fall into temptation. People who are prone to aggression can be dangerous. Source of examples: many things.org To answer your question, "rain-prone" is not really something that you would say. I hope this helps.
