Interfation


1. N. The act of interrupting someone while they are speaking.

Example: Misogynists often use interfation as a technique to undermine women in the workplace.

This word went out around the end of the seventeenth century. You’re not going to be able to find much to confirm this word existed unless you happen to own a dictionary from the turn of the 17th century, but I assure you, it is real.
