Language of Ingsoc, a fictional empire in the book 1984. The language was meant to eliminate all words deemed as nonsence, and was created to eliminate certain words, so dissent could not be expressed nor communicated
Fantastic = doubleplusgood
excellent = plus good
good = good
bad = ungood
terrible = plusungood
horrific = doubleplusungood

this would eliminate words of "excess"
and negative words would be replaced with its positive antonym with the prefix of -un. To stress an emotion, the prefixes of -double, -plus were added. The more prefixes, the more expression is placed in the word.
