It's remarkable how much doublespeak we are subjected to each day. . . the doublespeak emanating from Washington has never been more prevalent, more skillful, more insidious, or more potentially devastating than it is today. -Sal Marino
Doublespeak is insidious because it can infect and eventually destroy the function of language, which is communication between people and social groups. -William Lutz
Such doubletalk is doubly dangerous: Besides deceiving those
on the receiving end, it helps the users fool themselves.-Hugh Rawson
So, what's the all the fuss about doublespeak? Nearly everyone uses it, we see it everywhere--as long as we know it's out there, it can't affect us, right? WRONG!! Doublespeak corrupts thought, destroys communication, and erodes trust.
