From “The principles of Newspeak” (appendix to 1984, where Orwell explains how the fictional Newspeak language works):
In Newspeak, euphony outweighed every consideration other than exactitude of meaning. Regularity of grammar was always sacrificed to it when it seemed necessary. And rightly so, since what was required, above all for political purposes, was short clipped words of unmistakable meaning which could be uttered rapidly and which roused the minimum of echoes in the speaker’s mind … The use of them encouraged a gabbling style of speech, at once staccato and monotonous. And this was exactly what was aimed at. The intention was to make speech, and especially speech on any subject not ideologically neutral, as nearly as possible independent of consciousness. For the purposes of everyday life it was no doubt necessary, or sometimes necessary, to reflect before speaking, but a Party member called upon to make a political or ethical judgement should be able to spray forth the correct opinions as automatically as a machine gun spraying forth bullets.
I’m always interested in / horrified by instances where I find myself speaking without thinking. I think there’s something to the above - if patterns of speech become too easy, they might decouple from conscious thought.
How does one do the opposite, and maximize the thought applied to each statement? Can (should) you ensure that you build a sentence from scratch every time?
