[from 14th c.] * 1813, Percy Bysshe Shelley, _Queen Mab_, I: One, pale as yonder waning moon, / With lips of lurid blue; / The other, rosy as the morn / When throned on ocean's wave, / It blushes o'er the world: / Yet both so PASSING wonderful! * 2010, Simon Hattenstone, _The Guardian_, 30 Oct 2010: ‘I find it PASSING strange that convicts understand honest folk, but honest folk don't understand convicts.’ TRANSLATIONS USAGE NOTES * This use is sometimes misconstrued as meaning "vaguely" or "slightly" (perhaps by confusion with such phrases as "passing fancy", under Adjective, above), leading to formations such as "more than passing clever" etc.
