Difference between Trooper and Trouper

A trooper is a mounted soldier or police officer, or a state police officer.

  • The trooper told the new drivers to always wear seatbelts.

A trouper is a member of a group of actors or performers. The idiom, “He’s a real trouper” means the person contributes to his team or group.

  • John is a real trouper—he played today despite a broken arm.
