Definitions (clarity)[edit]

2. (transitive) To interrupt a conversation by introducing  a different subject or making a comment.
4. (intransitive) To intervene in a dispute, or in a conversation.

Current definitions are not very different. I see only that the meaning (2) is a particular / special case of the meaning (4). So, the definitions should be altered to show the difference, or examples which show the difference should be added. -- Andrew Krizhanovsky 09:51, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

I too had hard time understanding the differences of senses. Examples, please! --Vahagn Petrosyan 09:53, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

"interpose" in chess[edit]

My en-ru dictionary says that there is one more meaning:

  1. (chess): to defend the king, to defend some figure

Check, please. -- Andrew Krizhanovsky 09:55, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
