Emit at an inappropriate moment (5,4)


I believe the answer is:

wrong time

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'emit' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I cannot tell whether it can be defined by this definition.

'at an inappropriate moment' is the wordplay.
'at' says to put letters next to each other.
'an inappropriate' becomes 'wrong' (I've seen this before).
'moment' becomes 'time' (time is a kind of moment).
'wrong' put next to 'time' is 'WRONG TIME'.

Can you help me to learn more?
