If someone is talking "almost the first ten minutes" of something, should that be interpreted as being:

  • ten minutes, almost at the beginning, or
  • almost ten minutes, necessarily starting at the beginning?
  • Needs some context but I'm assume the latter. – KillingTime May 6 at 7:58

I would interpret it as the latter, starting at the beginning and talking for almost 10 minutes.
