Work purpose

  • Hello,

    Are you going to London for work purpose or purposes.

    Is it plurial or not ?

    Thank you.

    It may be an AE vs BE thing but the sentence sounds odd to me. Then again it could just be me. If I was going to use the sentence as is, I would use the plural.

    Personally, for what it is worth, I would say:
    Is your trip to London work related?
    Is the purpose of your trip to London work?
    Is work the reason your going to London?
