Eventually the Thought Police would get whoever committed thoughtcrime. Winston committed an act of thoughtcrime when he wrote in his diary.
What happens to the rewritten news articles after Winston puts them into the pneumatic tube?

His greatest pleasure is his work. He thinks he is good at the type of rewriting that he has to do
Describe the aim of Newspeak and how it works.
The main aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought. Newspeak is the only language that destroys words instead of adding new ones. The vocabulary continually gets smaller. When the Eleventh Edition of the Newspeak Dictionary is finished, every needed concept will be expressed by exactly one word. All meanings will be rigidly defined. It will become impossible to commit Thoughtcrime.
What is Syme's observation about Winston's appreciation of Newspeak?
Syme says that Winston does not really appreciate Newspeak, even though his written articles are good enough. Syme thinks Winston still thinks in and prefers Oldspeak.
Winston is at lunch when the message on the telescreen relates the good news about
increases in production, including that the chocolate ration has been raised to twenty
grams a week. What is Winston thinking as he hears this message?
Winston remembers that the previous day the chocolate ration had been decreased to twenty grams. He wonders how all the people manage to believe the lie. He wonders if he is the only person with a memory. Winston wonders if life has always been the way it is now, and why he feels that some things are intolerable. He thinks he must have an ancestral memory that things had once been different.
What is facecrime? Give an example.
Facecrime is having the wrong look on one's face. One's features are always to be under control. To show surprise or disbelief when a war victory is announced is a facecrime.

The girl with the dark hair is looking at him. Winston is afraid that she is a spy, if not a member of the Thought Police.
What is the aim of the Party with regard to male-female relationships and sex?
The Party wants to prevent men and women from forming relationships and loyalties that it might not be able to control. It wants to remove all pleasure from the sexual act.
What is the Party's policy on marriage, divorce, and children?
The Party approves all marriages. If the couple seem physically attracted to one another, the Party does not allow the marriage to take place. The only reason for sexual intercourse is to create a child. Divorce is not allowed. Separation is encouraged if there are no children.
What is the Party belief about the proles?
The Party sees the proles as natural inferiors who must be kept in subjection. They should not have strong political feelings. They do not need to be indoctrinated in Party ideology. They only need enough patriotism to make them accept whatever the Party offers.
Describe the one time that Winston held real evidence of an act of falsification.
Once when he was in the Chestnut Tree Café, Winston saw three men who had been arrested, confessed, and reinstated in the Party. A little while later they were arrested. They confessed
again and were killed. About five years later Winston found a newspaper article with photo of
the men at a Party function. The date of the article was the same as the date the men said they
were in Eurasia betraying the Party. Winston realized the confessions had to be false. He destroyed the newspaper article.
What bothers Winston the most, along with the sense of nightmare?
He is bothered because he does not clearly understand why the falsifications take place. He wonders if he is a lunatic.
What bothers Winston more than the thought that he might be a lunatic?
The thought that he might be wrong bothers him more.
What is the heresy of heresies? Why is that terrifying to Winston?
The heresy of heresies is common sense. It is terrifying to Winston that the Party
might be right in its ideas.

He is writing for O'Brien because he thinks O'Brien is on his side.
What is the final, most essential command of the Party?
The Party tells people to reject the evidence of their eyes and ears.
What does happens when Winston goes to the antique shop, and who does he see when he comes out.

Mr. Charrington tells Winston the part of an old nursery rhyme. When he leaves the shop he sees the girl from the Fiction Department. He thinks she is following him.

She says there is something in his face that shows he does not belong. She knew right away that Winston was against the Party.
What does the girl tell Winston about her attitude toward the party?
She hates the Party. She says the Party wants to stop people from having fun, so she breaks the rules whenever she can. She has no interest in Party doctrine. However, she always acts interested in the Party and participates in many activities.
Summarize Julia's explanation of the meaning of the Party's sexual puritanism.
Doing without sex created a kind of hysteria in the people. When people are able to have sexual relationships they use up energy and are happy. Then they are not interested in the Party. So keeping sex away from the people enables the Party to create fear and hatred.
According to Winston, how has the Party used the instinct of parenthood?
Parents are still encouraged to be fond of their children. However, the children are taught to spy on their parents, creating an arm of the Thought Police in every home.

They know it cannot last
Describe the meeting between Winston and O'Brien
They meet in a hallway in the Ministry. O'Brien compliments Winston on his writing. He mentions Syme's work but not his name.

Explain what is in the A vocabulary of Newspeak
The A vocabulary is the words needed for everyday life, such as eating, drinking, working, getting dressed, and riding in vehicles. There are not as many words as there are in current-day English. Each word expresses a simple thought involving a concrete object or physical action.
What two things about the grammar of Newspeak are peculiar?
First, the parts of speech are almost completely interchangeable. Any word can be made negative by using the affix un-. Words can be strengthened by using the affixes plus- or doubleplus-. Affixes including ante-, post-, up-, and down- can be used. Second, the language is very regular, with all inflections following the same rule.
Explain what is in the B vocabulary of Newspeak. Give examples.
The B vocabulary contains words that are used for political purposes. These words force a certain mental attitude on people. These words are all compound words. Miniluv, Minitrue, Minipeaceful, Oldthinkers, and unbellyfeel are some examples.
Explain what is in the C vocabulary of Newspeak. Who uses this part of the language? For what is there no word? Why?
The C vocabulary has scientific and technical words. Only scientific or technical workers use it, but they only know the words for their own specialty. There is no word for "science" because the meaning is covered by the word Ingsoc.
Duckspeak is the kind of speech that Newspeak aims to produce. It is a style of talking that sounds like the quacking of a duck, with the sounds coming from the larynx and as far removed as possible from thinking with the brain.
