    Cool working conditions

    Hello!

    Is there a difference between the phrases:

    - "working conditions" and "work conditions"?

    -"purchasing price" and "purchase price"?

    If none, which are the most common?

    Thank you

    Re: working conditions

    I "suppose" there is no difference in meaning.

    I would tend to use "working conditions" and "purchasing price" more spontaneously than the two others.

    Am I right?

    Thank you

    I would use "working conditions" and "purchase price". They are both grammatically correct and the meaning is clear either way.
