DO you think that today's language, when someone says a word, it has only one specific meaning?
IF LANGUAGE IS DOMINATED THEN SO ARE THE PEOPLE SPEAKING IT.
-IN 1984, THE NEWSPEAK WAS DESIGNED BY THE PARTY (GOVERNMENT) TO RESTRICT THE PEOPLE'S RANGE OF THOUGHT.
-LIKEWISE, OUR GOVERNMENT DESIGNATES AN OFFICIAL LANGUAGE TO RESTRICT ACCESS TO ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL POWER.

IS THE CONTROL OF LANGUAGE TODAY SIMILAR TO "NEWSPEAK" IN 1984?
BY: KAYLA HONEYCUTT
ASHLEY HONEYCUTT
WOULD YOU BELIEVE ME IF I SAID THAT WORDS HAVE MORE THAN ONE MEANING AND SOMETIMES THEY WOULD BE USED TO MEAN THE OPPOSITE AND MANIPULATE WHAT YOU THINK?
WHAT DO YOU THINK THESE WORDS IN BOTH POLITICAL LANGUAGE AND IN MODERN LANGUAGE MEAN?
-MATCH THEM TO THEIR CORRECT MEANING
MODERN LANGUAGE WORD POLITICAL LANGUAGE
a legally recognized
subject

noteworthy information
important events

one who uses violent acts


vow of assurance
citizen


news


terrorists




promise
slave

propaganda


anyone who stands in the way (not necessarily bad people)

I'm lying!
SIMILARITIES WITHIN 1984 AND TODAYS
"NEWSPEAK"
- BOTH GOVERNMENTS HAVE CONTROL AND A INFLUENCE OVER MEDIA AND LANGUAGE PRESENTED TO THE CITZENS.
- LOSS OF LANGUAGE AND FREE SPEECH
- PEOPLE REFUSE TO USE COMPLEX WORDS
- LOSS OF THOUGHT; LOSS OF VOICE
(MORE CONTROL ON HOW AND IF YOU EXPRESS YOURSELF)
- LANGUAGE HAS BECOME UNDERAPPRECIATED AND IS USED LESS OFTEN (FOR EXAMPLE: ABBREVIATIONS OR SLANG).
- LANGUAGE IS VIEWED AS A FORM OF REBELLION AGAINST THE SYSTEM
- NEWSPEAK (1984) = SLANG (TODAY)

RELATION
NSA (NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY) AND MINITRUTH (IN 1984) ARE SIMILAR BECAUSE THEY BOTH USE WORDS TO MISLEAD US INTO THINKING THEY AREN'T DOING OR HAVEN'T DONE SOMETHING THEY HAVE ALREADY DONE.
SEE....
ABBREVIATION!
ABBREVIATIONS!!
ABBREVIATIONS OR THE COMBINATION OF WORDS ARE BOTH WAYS OUR GOVERNMENT AND THE PARTY IN 1984 CONTROL THE RANGE OF VOCABULARY IN OUR LANGUAGE, THUS LIMITING OUR KNOWLEDGE AND POWER.
TODAY
THE BOOK
* NEWSPEAK IS FORCED UPON THE PEOPLE OF OCEANIA

* SIMPLY GETTING RID OF WORDS
* WE CHOOSE TO REVERT OUR LANGUAGE

* ALTERATIONS OF WORDS
MORE SIMULARITIES
- 1984: TELESCREENS IN EVERY ROOM. THE PROGRAMMING RUNS 24 HOURS A DAY, AND THE PROLES HAVE NO WAY OF TURNING THEIR SCREENS OFF.

- NOW: TELEVISIONS IN EVERY ROOM. THE PROGRAMMING RUNS 24 HOURS A DAY, AND THE PROLES RARELY TURN THEIR SCREEN OFF


MODERN LANGUAGE WORD NEWSPEAK
TO QUACK LIKE A DUCK


A FUN CAMP



RIGHTS
