“Goblin mode” was chosen by the public as the 2022 Oxford word of the year. The slang term refers to a type of behavior which is “unapologetically self-indulgent, lazy, slovenly, or greedy, typically in a way that rejects social norms or expectations”. ‘Goblin mode’ has been chosen as the Word of the Year by Oxford University Press (OUP). The term was first used in 2009 but went viral on social media earlier this year. OUP says its popularity may also be linked to the growth of new social media sites like BeReal.
