Newspeak: Fictional language in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, written by George Orwell (Eric Blair). It is a reduced language created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit free thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace, etc. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as `thoughtcrime,` `crimethink,` or `doublethink.`
