"It is a misconception to think that Newspeak consists mainly in inventing new words. An equally if not more important process is the destruction of many existing words." ~ George Orwell in 1984

"Several words relating to royalty and Christianity have been removed from the latest Oxford Junior Dictionary and replaced with terms such as 'broadband.'" ~ Story here.
