List of Newspeak words. In keeping with the principles of Newspeak, all of the words listed here serve as both nouns and verbs; thus, "crimethink" is both the noun "thought-crime" and the verb "to commit thoughtcrime". To form an adjective, one adds the suffix "-ful" (e.g. "crimethinkful"), and to form an adverb, "-wise" (e.g. "crimethinkwise"). Linguistically the Newspeak can be understood as an agglutinative language not unlike Finnish or Japanese.

Re-post: The complete text of 1984

Provo spelled backwards is Ovorp. "Adanac" is "Canada" spelled backwards, and it's an exceedingly common name for businesses, streets and so forth in Canada. Is this common in any other country?
