Yes I agree with the above answer, I have never heard that word used outside of that particular phrase, and all that phrase means is that the other person was just dominating the conversation to the point where you can barely say anything. Hope that helps

"Edgewise" means "barely," but I have almost never seen it used outside of this expression. "I couldn't get a word in edgewise" means "I barely had time to speak."
