[ nyspråket ]
Another import from English, nyspråk is a literal translation of newspeak, a concept invented by George Orwell in his novel "1984". Orwell's newspeak is a language where criticism of government policy is impossible and hence unthinkable. In current usage, newspeak is any political speech that attempts to whitewash an unpalatable truth through a particular choice of words.
