1. A prefix used to create the superlative form of an adjective or adverb. Also used for emphasis to stress an idea/emotion. Is superior to the prefix "plus."
ex.
doubleplusgood = fantastic/wonderful/amazing/etc.
plusgood = great/fine/better/etc.

This term originated from George Orwell's novel, 1984 as a part of the modified English language of Newspeak. In the book, doubleplus was used to eliminate "unnecessary" words to limit one's vocabulary/ability to express.
from the book...
"If you want a stronger version of "good", what sense is there in having a whole string of vague useless words like "excellent" and "splendid" and all the rest of them? "Plusgood" covers the meaning, or "doubleplusgood" if you want something stronger still. "
