[SWSE] 1/Turn abilities VS 1/Round abilities
So, I was recently going over character options for SWSE and I realized that the distinction of 1/Turn and 1/Round seemed synonymous to my understanding (of D&D-like games, such as SWSE).
I decided to do a Google search and found an interesting article (written for 5e):
Of particular note was:

However, Duck and Cover is defined as 1/Turn (whenever you are the target of an area attack that misses) and allows you to move 2 squares as a reaction without provoking AoO.
In all the time I've been playing, I would have ruled that Duck and Cover was basically a 1/Round ability, but the article above would imply that Duck and Cover may be used on the Turn of each enemy who misses the PC with an Area Attack (any number of times per round, but only once per Turn of any given enemy attacker).
Does this seem right? I ask because yet other feats, such as Collateral Damage, say 1/Turn on your turn, which seems to imply that you can use it more than once per round only if you somehow manage to gain the benefit of having more than one turn per round. Still other feats, such as Dive for Cover say you may use it 1/Turn, but you always end the movement it grants you prone. I would guess being prone would prevent you from using Dive for Cover again on a subsequent turn in the same round, since you have to wait for YOUR turn to get a chance to Stand Up from Prone, but RAW is getting a bit fuzzy here. I forget if SWSE has a Kip Up ability (I think it does because it's a very Jedi type maneuver), but if they do, then you could Dive For Cover, end up Prone, Kip Up as a Free action, then Dive For Cover again on yet another attacker's turn.
Yeah, yeah. These are all Reactions and typically you only have 1 Reaction per round, but I'm also pretty sure there are ways of getting more Reactions per round, too.
So tell me, am I onto something here, or does it just not work that way?
