Notes: Where I found this word shows both syllables accented, which seems pointless (it’s the same as neither being accented). I immediately thought of something (I’ll talk about it tomorrow), but wasn’t sure of the meaning.
The word oldspeak means “normal English usage, as opposed to propagandist, euphemistic, or obfuscatory language”.
Background / Comments
I thought of newspeak, but didn’t realize how close I was; this word, just like newspeak, comes from George Orwell’s book 1984.
The book 1984 was published in 1949, which is, naturally, the first usage.
