Book 1, Chapter 2 To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free, when men are different from one another and do not live alone — to a time when truth exists and what is done cannot be undone: From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink — greetings! Book 1, Chapter 6 And what he wanted, more even than to be loved, was to break down that wall of virtue, even if it were only once in his whole life.

Summary Analysis The Appendix describes Newspeak in more detail than was possible in the narrative parts of Newspeak, the official language of Ingsoc and Oceania, was not commonly spoken or written, except in newspaper articles. It was expected to replace Oldspeak, or Standard English, by , in the perfected version embodied by the Eleventh Edition of the Newspeak dictionary. The purpose of Newspeak was to make heretical thought impossible by eliminating undesirable words, and stripping existing words of unorthodox and secondary meanings.

Even negative terms such as "bad" have been eliminated, replaced by words like "ungood. A single word can be used as verb, noun, adjective, or adverb.

Certain crimes could no longer be committed because they were nameless and therefore unimaginable. For instance, the Declaration of Independence could only be translated using the single word "crimethink.

By limiting thought, Newspeak eliminates the possibility for people to think unique thoughts, to be unique, to express themselves in any way that might allow themselves to see themselves as individuals.
