What is verbal hostility?

Verbal hostility, or in other words, verbal harassment or abuse is basically a negative defining statement told to or about you or withholding a response and pretending the abuse is not happening. Verbal abuse (or hostility) can lead to emotional abuse and hostility in the workplace. This can lead to hatred and noneffective dispositions in the workplace, and this is precisely the reason why workplaces work to eliminate such disturbances. However, verbal abuse is seen in many other places, not just in the workplace. In school, it takes the title of bullying and even at home parents can emotionally abuse their children or spouses.
