pass away - Die or died. A euphemism that has troubled me since I was child. As I see it, people do not "pass away" or "pass," they die.

passé - Known to mean "no longer fashionable, in wide use, etc.; out-of-date; outmoded," the word also means "past the prime of one's life."

e.g., While I've known for more years than I care to divulge that I'm passé, it still annoys me to have it impolitely called to my attention. Oh, it's not being passé that bothers me, just having some much younger woman make it clear to me that she thinks I'm passé -- for instance, by saying something such as "Pardon me, grandpa, could you speed it up." My usual lame response is "I may be a grandfather, but I'm not your grandfather. Once they got past the toddler stage, my grandkids were taught to be polite and not say something like that."

pass-a - Passé. Spelled this way, you'll have a much better chance of having the word pronounced correctly.

passed away - One of several touchy-feely euphemisms for dead, often used in the most ridiculous ways. While I might find "passed away" as almost acceptable to refer to the "passing" (i.e., death) of an elderly person who had gradually succumbed to a terminal illness, the term is unsuitable to sudden and violent deaths -- especially homicides involving children.

e.g., "'Regardless, whether she’s alive or passed away, we need to find Caylee,' Beary said." Sheriff Beary is an ignoramus. No way is "passed away" suitable in that context. The only acceptable or tolerable choice is "dead."

passengassen - In the habit of passing up one station after another in hopes of finding even cheaper gas someplace else.

passenger's arm - A person (more likely male) who has a more tan right arm than left. This is a sign that the person is often the passenger in a car. May well indicate a lack of independence and a bummer of rides.
