Is the use of "egg on" common in colloquial American English? Is it used? I looked up its use on Ngram, but it dosen't hint at the actual usage, so I just felt like asking.
To urge someone to do something, often something mischievous. A noun or pronoun can be used between "egg" and "on."
Trevor's never been in trouble before, so I'm sure his friends egged him on to start the food fight.
