The fictional new language of Oceania in George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984. In the novel, the language was developed by the ruling party of Oceania, Ingsoc, to meet its ideological needs. Newspeak was designed to limit the range of human thought and one's choice of words by reducing redundant words or words that did not fit with Oceania's totalitarian ideology. Often, used to describe double-talk and propaganda.
