Passed or past

>**Summary** > >These two words, past and passed, are two words that cause a lot of confusion in the English language. Past is never used as a verb, that is a good way to remember the difference. Passed is always a verb. If you’ve ever stuck, just think… Is it a verb? If the answer is yes, you know it is passed you need. Happy learning!

Past is a point in time. Passed is the past tense of a verb, to pass.

Passed is a verb. Past is not a verb. [Here's what the Oxford English Dictionary has to say](https://www.oxfordinternationalenglish.com/passed-vs-past-whats-the-difference/)

Passed is used as a verb, past is not. So “I passed your house today.” So saying “passed” means something already happened. “I *passed* by your house today” “I’m going to drive *past* your house.” Hope this makes sense! :)

homophones. Passed is a been, past is another part of speech. I’m not sure which. I stopped taking English after 9th grade. “I passed (by) the house.” BUT you could say “I went past the the house.” it depends on how you phrase it. “I hope to live past my 30th birthday.” (me too.)
