Screen Cap from Oxford dictionary online

Hikikomori is originally Japanese, meaning for the people who are detached from the society and stays home most of the time.

It’s now officially in the Queen’s dictionary… well Oxford’s to be exact. The definition of the word remains the same and it’s a noun.

The word found it’s way into the dictionary in the latest revision which also sees the inclusion of words like Vuvuzela, Frenemy and bromance… as part of the 2000 words added to the list.

So to upcoming ‘O’ Level and ‘A’ Level students, here are a few mores words you can use in your composition. LOL
