This year, the Oxford’s Word Of The Year was selected by the public – first time in its history. “Goblin Mode” was crowned, beating out strong competitors like “metaverse” and “#IStandWith”.
So, what exactly does “Goblin Mode” mean?
Definition and how to use it #
The Oxford Dictionary defines the slang term as “a type of behavior which is unapologetically self-indulgent, lazy, slovenly, or greedy, typically in a way that rejects social norms or expectations”.
In case you are wondering how to use it in a sentence, here is an example:
Caleb was in total Goblin Mode last night. He woke up at 3am, wearing nothing but a jacket, made himself a bowl of cereal, not with milk but with ketchup. It was kind of funny and disgusting at the same time.
