Learning a new language is always a challenge. When the language to be acquired is designed to confuse and conquer, the task requires readily accessible reference resources that clarify definitions and suggest appropriate usage. The challenge is confounded when the language is repurposed with wild abandon.
Fortunately, lexicographers and wordsmiths are at the ready to capitalize on the opportunity presented by a newly contrived language, particularly when the use of that language is designed to misinform the public and to weaponize the native tongue.
Following is a listing of user aids that have been hastily crafted to clarify terminology currently in popular use in the conduct of political, governmental, and financial discourse:

Political language…is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.~ George Orwell
