Nota de uso

The use of a plural noun after bulk, when it has the meaning `majority', although common, is considered by some to be incorrect and should be avoided. This usage is most commonly encountered, according to the Bank of English, when referring to funds and profits: the bulk of our profits stem from the sale of candy. The synonyms majority and most would work better in this context.
