View topic - まで出かかった in phrase Xは喉まで出かかった言葉を飲み込んだ
I'm pretty sure it's translated as "Daisuke swallowed the words in his throat".
But I'm just wondering the usage of まで出かかった here. My best guess:
Up to the throat
出 (is this read as で still? までで sounds kind of funny)
rising words that hung in the throat?
Did I deconstruct that correctly?

A literal translation would be something like Daisuke swallowed the words that had (made it/gotten/come out) as far as his throat

so I think the translation of that sentence is "Daisuke swallowed the words that had gone out through his throat"

I just added it:
"to just appear; to be half out; to be on the tip of one's tongue"
