Trouper/trooper

Posted by Swalsh on February 24, 2004

Can anyone clear up a little arguement I'm currently involved in?

The phrase involved is "....like a trooper" OR
"....like a trouper"

Eg, swears like...., plays like...

I'm pretty convinced that it's the latter which is correct, as in trouper on the stage, gritty, show must go on etc etc. Anyone shed any light?

Cheers..
