By Ellen Bartee

The objective of this textbook is to coach the scholar tips to communicate the Lhasa number of Tibetan. as the start line of this booklet is especially basic, ite presents a great chance for the scholar to instantly depend on Tibetan script instead of romanized script. This, we think, can assist to immerse the scholar in Tibetan.

Therefore humour is an important component of working contexts and even when not formally provided or created, it would be an unusual (Western) workplace where there is no joking, laughing and banter to ease the day. Having said this, I did manage to find myself (unhappily) working in a company where humour was expressly forbidden – but even this did not wipe out humour and with my colleagues, I laughed at such a ridiculous rule and we made covert jokes about our domineering boss. Even if not openly shared, humour can flourish in quiet corners, private emails and social spaces in workplaces and therefore it is safe to assume that humour is a part of most, if not all working environments.

As she hung up the phone, Brenda approached Cathy’s desk and firmly chided the younger woman for using bad language with a customer of the company. Cathy was very offended by the admonishment and this interchange signalled the start of a period of very unhappy relations in the group. In her first 2–3 weeks, Brenda scolded the younger employees for their jocular abuse of each other, their occasional profane banter with customers, and their use of profanity in many of their joking exchanges. As a result, the young work-team excluded Brenda from all of the social interchanges at work, but in particular excluded her from all their joking repartee.
