Abstract

Political organisations and other groups both in Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, and in the late twentieth century, used language to gain influence over public opinion. I will introduce Newspeak, the official language of the totalitarian Oceania. Then I will examine the aims of this language and compare its style with that which the political parties employs in the late tweentieth century. I will also show how history can be altered with the aid of language. Afterwards I will demonstrate that opinion can be influenced through the media. Using quotes from George Orwell, Bertrand Russell, Jenni Calder and Ferenc Takács to support my arguments in this essay.
