Turkey: The Supreme “Neutralizer” Nation of 2020

“Political language […] is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”

George Orwell – “Politics and the English Language” (1946).

“Euphemisms are frequently used by speakers of different languages in order to avoid troublesome terms and phrases which possibly refer to something unpleasant or embarrassing. Thus, euphemisms facilitate social discourse by softening the impact of taboo-marked subjects with the potential to cause offence and social disapproval. However, euphemisms are also used frequently by governmental institutions – especially by the military – to hide unpleasant or disturbing ideas. Consequently, the term double-talk refers to those euphemisms deliberately and frequently used by the government or the military in an attempt to confuse and conceal the truth. These euphemisms play down the degree of violence, objectivize the enemy as well as the means of warfare and can lead to social double-thinking by forming a kind of code that distorts reality.”

Taugerbeck, Sebastian. (2013). Military Euphemisms in Media Coverage – Euphemisms in special contexts of war reporting.
