  George Orwell: 1984 - Part III - Chapter 6
It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought - that is, a thought diverging from the principles of Ingsoc - should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words.
In some cases they could be translated into Oldspeak, or even into words taken from the A vocabulary, but this usually demanded a long paraphrase and always involved the loss of certain overtones.
In 1984, when Oldspeak was still the normal means of communication, the danger theoretically existed that in using Newspeak words one might remember their original meanings.

It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought -- that is, a thought diverging from the principles of Ingsoc -- should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words.
In some cases they couId be translated into Oldspeak, or even into words taken from the A vocabulary, but this usually demanded a long paraphrase and always involved the loss of certain overtones.
The shortest rendering that one could make of this in Oldspeak would be: 'Those whose ideas were formed before the Revolution cannot have a full emotional understanding of the principles of English Socialism.' But this is not an adequate translation.

 Newspeak
The words of this group are nearly entirely composed of Oldspeak words, but in comparison, their number is very small.
In practice it is not difficult for a person well grounded in Doublethink to avoid doing this, but within a couple of generation even the possibility of such a lapse would have vanished.
It is to be foreseen that with the passage of time Newspeak words would become fewer and fewer, their meanings more and more and more rigid, and the chance to put them to improper uses always diminished.

 APPENDIX. The Principles of Newspeak
It was expected that Newspeak would have finally superseded Oldspeak (or Standard English, as we should call it) by about the year 2050.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.
It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought -- that is, a thought diverging from the principles of Ingsoc -- ; should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words.
And in addition, only a person thoroughly grounded in Ingsoc could appreciate the full force of the word bellyfeel, which implied a blind, enthusiastic acceptance difficult to imagine today; or of the word oldthink, which was inextricably mixed up with the idea of wickedness and decadence.

In practice it was not difficult for any person well grounded in doublethink to avoid doing this, but within a couple of generations even the possibility of such a lapse would have vanished.
It was impossible to translate any passage of Oldspeak into Newspeak unless it either referred to some technical process or some very simple everyday action, or was already orthodox(goodthinkful would be the Newspeak expression) in tendency.

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the worldview, and mental habits proper to the followers of Ingsoc; but also to make all other modes of thought impossible.

It could not be used in Oldspeak terms as intellectually free or politically free, as the concepts of such freedom no longer exist, and are therefore, nameless.

 Oldspeak Vs. Newspeak
In the novel, the Ministry of Truth systematically encourages Winston, the protagonist, to abandon Oldspeak and learn "to grasp the beauty of the destruction of words."[4] By acquiring Newspeak, Winston would learn that the past can be altered.
The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became truth."[5] Eventually, Winston would even come to accept "that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy."[6] I then revisited W. Arthur Lewis's small 1965 classic, Politics in West Africa.
Had Henze used Oldspeak, he could have provided us with many important insights and a deeper understanding of a complex project that has involved state-building along ethnic lines, "directed democracy," and socio-economic development.

"Oldspeak," the form of English spoken by the common people of the time that 1984 was written, is known as being full of "useless shades of meaning," as Orwell's character Syme puts it (Orwell 36).
This seems abnormal to speakers of Oldspeak, but it is an essential part of the simple-mindedness of Newspeak.
It is for the governments of these types of countries that Oldspeak would be a good thing; for totalitarian governments, however, the allowed expression in Oldspeak is often what brings about their downfall.

 On Cognitive Liberty (Part II)
Those people raised with Newspeak, having never known the wider-range of Oldspeak, might fail to notice, indeed, might be unable to even perceive, that the Government was limiting consciousness.
Just as Newspeak was intended to make certain Old(speak) thoughts literally unthinkable, so the War on Entheogens makes certain sorts of cognition and awareness all but inaccessible.
Just as Newspeak depended in part upon time eradicating knowledge of Oldspeak, today’s War on Entheogens is sustainable, in part, because the current generation of young adults (those 21 - 30 years old) have never known a time when most entheogens were not illicit.

oldSpeak spoke with him late last month about the case that has made him a pariah to the corporate world and a hero to consumer activists everywhere.
So the Supreme Court decided I guess that the line between commercial and private speech had not been clearly drawn, and it was important that this time, given the right case, to try to draw that line.
Specifically at issue here is whether the speech that Nike was engaged in, in representing this Nike code of conduct, was private speech or commercial speech.

It uses the same vocabulary as Oldspeak (my native language), but many of its words have been stripped of their usual meanings.
I’ve realised that I can no longer function in modern society unless I teach myself Energyspeak, which is why I’ve spent a lot of time wading through alternative health magazines and books, and surfed up and down the Internet in search of enlightenment.
When we are injured in a car crash, or our child develops meningitis, we don’t worry about the state of our energy bodies, or ask if there is an energy therapist in the house; we insist on being rushed to the nearest conventional hospital.

The word Doublespeak does not actually occur in Orwell's book, "1984".
The term however has come into common useage as Orwellian based on Orwell's other terms such as doublethink, duckspeak, Newspeak, and Oldspeak.
I mention this because terms such as Newspeak, doublethink, unperson and Oldspeak are becoming necessary to discuss the relationship between government and the citizenry in the U.S. and to explain party constituency behavior.
