If I wanted to say "I work all day every week days" Using "whole day" instead of "all day", Should I say

"I work the whole day every week days?


"I work whole days every week days"


"I work a whole day every week days"


"I work whole day every week days"

It will be helpful if there's an explanation why which is correct. Thanks!

I work the whole day every week day.



In many countries, there are five working days -- usually from Monday to Friday (and are defined as such in official and legal usage even though many people work on weekends) -- and they are also called weekdays.

So, depending upon how long your working day usually lasts, you can say, for example:

I work on weekdays from nine (a.m.) to six (p.m.)


I think "I work whole days every week day" is perfectly natural, apart from repeating 'days'.

So maybe 'I work whole days Monday to Friday' would be okay too.

Even better, perhaps 'I work full-time' which just implies that you work a standard working week (Monday - Friday, ~9 to 6 as defined by Rompey).



1. occupying or using the whole of someone's available working time. "a full-time job"
