For this reading, you only need to read from the middle of page 95 (start on the second paragraph where it says, “In our time”) to the end (page 97). Of course, if you want to read more, please do. Before you answer the questions below be sure that you are familiar with George Orwell and the context surrounding when he wrote (do some research if you need to). In a minimum 250-word paragraph, do the following:
Orwell says that “The great enemy of clear language is insincerity” and that “What is above all needed is to let the meaning choose the word, not the other way around…the worst thing one can do with words is surrender to them”. How do you respond to this? Start by saying what you think Orwell means by this and then use the idea to discuss an issue that you’ve seen or experienced with how language is used in the world around you (this can be something in the public, something political, something in your family or with your friends–anything goes!)
