Here, because 'him' refers to another human suspect and 'you' to British Army Major Rachel Dalton (portrayed by Rhona Mitra), http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/downwind doesn't make sense and is out of context.
However, the best definition will depend on the context, since something taken out of context can be described by a slew of adjectives such as misquoted, misconstrued, etc.
This may not answer your question exactly (as it isn't even an adjective), but I was also looking for a word to describe "taking something out of context, and stumbled across the following:
The practice of misquoting someone by shortening the quotation or by leaving out surrounding words or sentences that would place the quotation in context.
Looks like a pretty good answer for the word you are looking for. Does it help?
The adjective incongruous describes something that is out of place. Something that does not blend in with its surroundings.
It would fit well in your example context.
I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but there is a word that describes when you have used a word out of context when you really mean a similar-sounding word: malapropism
I did so recently when I accidentally substituted 'inert' for 'innate'.
You are misunderstanding the phrase "out of context" with the phrase "isn't appropriate there". From what I've understood you think the word "downwind" isn't the appropriate word to use in that context.
In cases when something is somewhere where it shouldn't be - isn't appropriate or suitable there (doesn't fit in) we use:
- inapt, inapplicable, inapposite, misplaced, Irrelevant
"Out of context" means 'Without the surrounding words or circumstances and so not fully understandable.'
Learn to use phrases rather than words. You can always change the formatting of a sentence to accommodate for the three-word adjective 'out-of-context'. In fact, that is arguably the best way to say it: the word 'non-contextual' dampens the meaning and sounds pretentious without adding value to any statement you could possibly throw it in.
Compare 'that's non-contextual' to `that's out-of-context' and let me know if you agree.
is useful in many instances of non-context.
