Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence from the movie ”The Matrix”?
This line is tapped, so I must be brief.
tape the line = eavesdrop telephone call
Telephone tapping describes the monitoring of telephone conversations by a third party, often by covert means
Thank you for your efforts.
Yes, but you have types 'tape' instead of 'tap' I would be more likely to say 'the phone is tapped', though.
