Young children are, most of the time considered naive and oblivious to what is going on around them. Therefore, if a child is shown something from an adult or a parental figure, they usually will mimic their behavior, because it is what they think is the right thing to do.

George Orwell’s

George Orwell is a philosophical author who aims to write about politics, society, and the impact of language. He has a famous book about a dystopian society, “1984.” Along with that, he has an essay called “Politics and the English Language.” Both of these works were about how society is influenced by language, mostly. Orwell, in both of these texts, relates language to politics and society by explaining how language can give people the tools to fully express their ideological and political ideas, by expanding the range of verbs that can be used to explain something. If the language is narrowed, then people will have a harder time trying to express their ideas and will be forced to conform to the use of non-descriptive words to explain their ideas.
