What is the meaning and/or function of the words "de ce pas" in the sentence "je m'en vais de ce pas chercher mon voisin"?

Hi Sally,

'De ce pas' means, 'right away', 'immediately', 'at once'...

Pas in this sense means 'step' , literally 'with this step'.

e.g.

J'y vais de ce pas = I am going at once

Hope this helps!

That looks like a typo  to me. If "ce" were "ne" it would make sense.

Thanks, Cécile, learned something new!
