Troubleshooted v Troubleshot - Which is Correct?
I constantly hear and see both these terms. Some people say troubleshot. Others say troubleshooted. I can get the argument for both. However, I'm genuinely curious if one is actually correct over the other, or if they are just like to-ma-to vs to-mat-o, etc.
I personally say either "I troubleshooted the issue" or "I did troubleshoot the issue" or "I'm troubleshooting the issue". I've tried saying troubleshot before, but it doesn't roll of the tongue the same way, at least for me. So I'm curious, which do you say, and why? Also, what's your thoughts on the matter?
I've always hear troubleSHOT and I'm pretty sure that I've researched it and it was the accepted form.
I try to stick with the troubleshoot form. So I change my sentences around to fit it. Using "did troubleshoot" seems, to me, to flow better then "troubleshot".
It is almost always used in the past tense.
"I troubleshot the issue with his computer."
I have never said "I troubleshooted the issue for him"
I figured out what was wrong.
Troubleshooting is how I figured out what was wrong.
Dictionary says troubleshot.
