    Pass or Past

    Would you tell someone to "Let the man past" or "Let the man pass"?

    I believed it was "Pass" but my beautiful girlfriend is convinced it's "Past"

    Thanks for any reply

    PS As you can guess, I wrote beautiful incase she's wrong and I show her this post :)

    Re: Pass or Past

    They both work for me.
    "Let him pass". 'Pass' is a verb.
    "Let him [go] past". 'Past' is an adverb.
