    It is a term associated with the sport of fencing which means "touched" (aka "Ya got me!").

    When used in an everyday context, it is meant as a reluctant "You have a point..." or "You've got me there." As in -

    "I can't believe Jane's husband is divorcing her!"

    "Well, she did cheat on him with 5 other guys, including his own brother."

    "Touche." ; )

    French for touch. In fencing, a point is scored when a person touches the opponent with the epee (or the weapon of choice). Combatants are on their honor to acknowledge when the touch takes place. They do so by saying "touche".

    It has come to be used as a general acknowledgement that an opponent has scored against you.

    Touché is a French term (literally, touched) that is used in fencing to acknowledge the receipt of a valid hit.

    It is also used in conversation or debate to concede a point as true.

    More commonly, it is used sarcastically to indicate that one is unable to argue against another's absurd logic.
