    Ms Nicky Baruch

    Please help me settle a dispute.

    "She floats on past." or "She floats on passed".

    many thanks.

    If you can substitute the word by, then use the spelling past:

    Ex: She floats on by.
    Ex: She floats on past.

    Source: Confusing Words--Past, Passed - Learning Activity


    verb: I passed my English test.
    participle: I have passed my English test.

    noun: Tell me about your past.
    adjective: What's your past history?
    adverb: The log floated on past/by.
    preposition: When I got home, it was past midnight.

    Does that help?
