    lapse away and pass over

    Dear Teachers hope you are ok,

    - I just wonder if the verb lapse away has the same mening of miss out.

    we missed out the deadline( we lapsed away the deadline).

    they pass over their interest to submitt their offer.

    what is meant by pass over here ? ignore or avoid

    thanks indeed.

    Smile Re: lapse away and pass over

    Lapse: slip/error/decline. I don't think you will be able to use this to mean 'miss out'. And in any case, do you mean 'we missed the deadline' in your question? You could say: 'the deadline lapsed, and we missed it'.

    I'm not so sure on 'pass over'. What should be the meaning of the sentence?
