troops vs soldiers

  • March 19, 2007, 12:13am

In effect from all the conversations, I see a miss. The point is that by definition the word meant something but by usage, by the battering of time (call it language rust), the meaning changed.
I don't think I would be wrong in saying, that from a puritanical perspective usage of 'troops' for 'soldiers' is incorrect and from the angle of going with the flow, it is accepted.
