I have been seeing the term trope used on the message boards this summer and after looking it up, I'm still not sure what it means. Can anyone explain trope? Thks.

I'm getting this straight from good ole Webster:

trope
b : a common or overused theme or device : cliché <the usual horror movie tropes>

A good example in romance would be the secret baby plot.
