    hostile environment

    Hello, teacher.

    I have one question.
    What does exactly "hostile environment" mean?
    I thought it's talking about the harassment in general, which may cause a disturbance in the office, such as a sexual harassment, moral harassment, aging harassment and so on.

    Or does it have a particular meaning?

    Please help me!

    Thanks.

    Out of context, one would most probably think of harsh weather conditions or something along that line. Context, though, might change the meaning.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Context: It's related to the office situation. Person A in the office said to Person B " you are creating a hostile environment!" .

    How about this time?

    Please help me!
