It seems unbelievable outside of an Orwellian novel about the destruction of language, but it is happening.
Not in a dystopic future world, but now.
Orwellian Destruction of Language: The Tyranny of Fake Pronouns
The progression of politically-correct has reached the point where some people and some groups are trying to legislate respect and alter the language – introducing a confusing haze of trendy new neologisms that are meant to reflect the new era of fluidity and identity politics.
NEWSPEAK was the official language of Oceania and had been devised to meet the ideological needs of Ingsoc, or English Socialism. In the year 1984 there was not as yet anyone who used Newspeak as his sole means of communication, either in speech or writing. The leading articles in the Times were written in it, but this was a tour de force which could only be carried out by a specialist. It was expected that Newspeak would have finally superseded Oldspeak (or Standard English, as we should call it) by about the year 2050. Meanwhile it gained ground steadily, all Party members tending to use Newspeak words and grammatical constructions more and more in their everyday speech. The version in use in 1984, and embodied in the Ninth and Tenth Editions of the Newspeak Dictionary, was a provisional one, and contained many superfluous words and archaic formations which were due to be suppressed later. It is with the final, perfected version, as embodied in the Eleventh Edition of the Dictionary, that we are concerned here.
