Newspeak was a invented language mentioned in George Orwell's 1984 designed not to express thought as much as to suppress it. Through a process of simplifying the language, what we would call today "dumbing it down", the totalitarian socialists in the novel intended to produce a society of people who spoke without saying anything. The highest compliment to be given to a political orator would be a "doubleplusgood duckspeaker".
