In fencing, touché (French pronunciation: [tuʃe]), the French word for "touch", is used as an acknowledgement of a hit[1], called out by the fencer who is hit. Conversely, if a fencer concedes a hit when no hit was actually made, the fencer's adversary would say, "pas de touché" (French pronunciation: [pɑ də tuʃe]; English: "no touch") to indicate that the hit should not be counted.[2]

The word "touché" is also often used in popular culture and general conversation — for example, in an argument or debate — to congratulate someone on a clever response to an argument.[3]
