Hello Raincoat,

Please see my answer to this same question from sambala just below. I think that will clear it up for you, but if not, please let us know.

Hello Raincoat,

In most offices where there are many people who work there, each person has their own desk. In an office where people hot desk, they don't have a desk that they always use. They use different desks on different days or for different purposes.

I hope this helps you.

All the best,

Hi
So you don’t hot desk here? hot desk here verb or noun .
I think it is verb because do not before it
thanks

Hello ahmed mohamed salem,

That's correct, here the noun is being used as a verb. This is sometimes done in English and there's a a good blog post about it at the Oxford University Press's blog if you're interested in knowing more about it. It's not written for English learners, but I thought I'd at least mention it.

Hi,
I've been confused about ''meet-up'' as well. I mean whether it's used as a noun in this context? Thanks!

Hi sambala,

Yes, in this context it is used as a noun. 'A meet-up' is generally an informal or social meeting to which many are invited but at which attendance is not obligatory.

 

Best wishes,

Hi,
From what I known, there is no ''hot desk'' (as a verb) in any Dictionary. Instead, I only found out ''hot desking'' as a noun. So, what exactly does it mean and what are its form as a verb?
Sincerely!
