是不是可以说:

在这上下文,这个生词不可以这样用。

还有,

You've taken it entirely out of context.

或者比如有学生问老师个问题,可是问提不太清楚,老师会回答说:

Can you give provide some context?

'Context' stands for the 'environment' / 'background' that an object or event lives in.

It could be translated differently depending on context.
它可以依照语境来作具体翻译.

..

在这上下文,这个生词不可以这样用。
/ 在当前上下文,这个生词不可以像这样用。

Remarks: In modern Chinese '这' rarely appears alone instead of '这儿' '这里' '这样' '此'.

..

You've taken it entirely out of context.
你完全脱离了背景范畴. / 你过于断章取义了. /你过于片面了.

..

Can you give provide some context?
可以提供一些相关背景吗?
