‘Goblin mode’: Oxford Word of the Year unveiled

Wordsmith and Broadcaster Kel Richards says “goblin mode” means “being really slovenly and a bit indolent”.

“The theory is, it boomed during the work-from-home lockdowns,” Mr Richards told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

Oxford invited the public for the first time to vote for the Word of the Year, with “goblin mode” competing against “Metaverse” and “#Istandwith”.
