"for the purpose" of or to?
How would you write this sentence:
"Maybe I should start blogging again just for the purpose to(?) practice my English."
Is it correct to say "to practice" after "for the purpose? It somehow sounds weird.
Thanks in advance.
I'll answer Sanjay's comment here.
"For practicing" and "for the purpose of" do not combine to become "for the purpose for practicing". Rather, they combine to be "for the purpose of practicing".
In other uses, "for practicing" is a perfectly good phrase. "For practicing English, writing a blog is a good idea."
