Oceania 'tis thee to whom we give our love to. We are blissful and benefit from our simplistic way of life, Thanks to big brother watching over us. He shows us the way, he shows us how to think, he loves us! He gives us what we need!!
Ignorance is strength!
Eurasia 'tis thee to whom we give our hate to. We at constant war blame Goldstein the commander of the vast shadowy army, the Brother hood.
They corrupt the purity of the party, they violate and pollute our minds.
He advocates freedom of speech freedom of press, freedom of assembly, freedom of thought and immediate conclusions of
peace It can not be so the reality is;
war is peace!
Alteration form orthodox thought and expression enslaves the man that allows it. Thought crime does not entail death, thought crime is death!
Follow big brother and the party and be at liberty.
Freedom is slavery!
Love big brother
Doublespeak is language that pretends to communicate but really doesn't. It is language that makes the bad seem good, the negative seem positive, the unpleasant appear attractive or at least tolerable. Doublespeak is language that avoids or shifts responsibility, language that is at variance with its real or purported meaning. It is language that conceals or prevents thought; rather than extending thought, doublespeak limits it.
Basic to doublespeak is incongruity, the incongruity between what is said or left unsaid, and what really is. It is the incongruity between the essential function of language -communication- and what doublespeak does- mislead, distort, deceive, circumvent, obfuscate.
four kinds of doublespeak:
1. EUPHEMISM - "SERVICING THE TARGET" the army killing people
2.JARGON - "DISCONTINUITY" a crack in a metal support beam
3.GOBBLEDYGOOK OR BUREAUCRATESE basically, such doublespeak is simply a matter of piling on words of overwhelming the audience with words, the bigger the words and the longer the sentences the better.
4.INFLATED LANGUAGE - "AUTOMOTIVE INTERNIST" car mechanic, "VERTICAL TRANSPORTATION CORPS" elevator operator "INITIATING A CAREER ALTERNATIVE ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM" laying off employees, "PRE-EMPTIVE COUNTERATTACK" the troops attacked first.
this was an assignment I did for class a LONG time ago, I thought I'd put it up here on the tube!
if you want more examples of these kinds of doublespeak, look to your government. ;)
