Jen passe - French Expression

Jen passe - French Expression Expression: ... et jen passe Pronunciation: [ ay zha(n) pahs] Meaning: and thats not all, and all sorts of things, and so on Literal translation: and I pass over some Register: normal Notes The French expression et jen passe is a sort of verbal shorthand, a way of letting listeners know that you are skipping over boring or excessive details. The adverbial pronoun en replaces the implied word choses- the things youre skipping over. Example   Ã‚  Ã‚   Ce que Michel est raseur  ! Il na pas arrà ªtà © de parler de son divorce, dà ©mà ©nagement, licenciement et jen passe  !   Ã‚  Ã‚  Michel is such a bore! He droned on about his divorce, move, firing, and on and on! Variation   Ã‚  Ã‚   Jen passe et des meilleures - literally, I pass over some and better ones. Note that meilleures is feminine plural to agree with choses.
