Could you tell me if there is any difference between the phrasal verb win out and win through. For example:

The amount of work I had to do was overwhelming, but in the end I won out.

The amount of work I had to do was overwhelming, but in the end I won through.

I don't know that I've ever heard the phrase "win through" although it appears to be idiomatic in UK English.

"Pushed through" can convey perseverance and is the closest alternative I can think of at the moment.

Also, your tenses disagree. If you're speaking about a quantity of work done in the past, you would say that:

The amount of work I had to do was overwhelming, but in the end I won out.

  • Thanks for the answer, but I wanted to know if there is a nuance of difference between "win out" and "win through". – Dmytro O'Hope Apr 3 at 5:44
