Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the verb in bold in the following sentence?
But her husband, for they had been married four, five years now, jumped, started, and said, "All right!" angrily, as if she had interrupted him.
interrupt = interfere in someone else's activity
Thanks for your efforts.
Interrupted also means 'broke in on someone's conversation'.
That's what it means here - started talking when he was already talking.
