barenmind Posted October 23, 2011 Share Posted October 23, 2011 World English Dictionary: interloper (ˈɪntəˌləʊpə —n 1. an intruder 2. a person who introduces himself into professional or social circles where he does not belong 3. a person who interferes in matters that are not his concern 4. a person who trades unlawfully ============================================================== A close friend of mine has recently called me an interloper on more than one occasion. Not being a word I use frequently, I decided to look up the definition. I have to say, unless I'm misinterpreting what this word actually means (or he is), I find this pretty insulting. He is basically saying we are not friends at all. I'll comment later with details about this situation, but in the meantime, I'd like to know what this word means to you. Can you use (hypothetical) examples of someone you would consider to be an interloper? Link to comment
