office is toligo

toligo = office (noun) (building or room) (Some things Google found for "toligo": a rare term; apparently an unusual abbreviated adjective used only in some Spanish regions for "tonto del higo" which means something like silly in Spanish; a Polish website which says it's for to submit, receive and track files; user names; a very rare last name; Toligo Electronics Ltd of St. Lucia)

Word derivation for "office" (building or room):
Basque = bulego, Finnish = toimisto
Miresua = toligo

This is a brand new word, not another revision.

The word office doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but it does occur twice in Through the Looking-glass.
"Now then! Show your ticket, child!" the Guard went on, looking angrily at Alice. And a great many voices all said together ("like the chorus of a song," thought Alice), "Don't keep him waiting, child! Why, his time is worth a thousand pounds a minute!"

"I'm afraid I haven't got one," Alice said in a frightened tone: "there wasn't a ticket-office where I came from."
