How do you pronounce “impasse”? It’s being used w.r.t. Brexit a lot. There’s the English way and the foreign way. I prefer “imp,” rather than “amp.” Does that give me away as a Brexiteer?
Yeah, I heard that on the TV last night! Amp sounds wrong. It might be code word used by Ramoners, like Mason's handshake.
I think they probably wanted to say 'en passant' and pulled themselves up before they got to the 'ant' part. Either that or they had been in Kitty O'Sheas.
In Dutch, it is 'patstelling' or 'doodlopende straat', Others use 'impasse'.
