Today's corporations, news media, education departments - and, perhaps most troubling, politicians - speak to us and to each other in clichéd, impenetrable, lifeless babble. Toni Morrison has called it the 'disabled and disabling' language of the powerful, 'evacuated language', and 'dead language'. Orwell called it 'anesthetic' language. In Death Sentences, Don Watson takes up the fight against it - the pestilence of bullet points, the dearth of verbs, the buzzwords, the weasel words and cant, the Newspeak of a kind Orwell could not have imagined.
