The idea is that if people simply cannot express themselves through words, over generations, they will cease to feel the things they cannot express. I don't think you can transfer this idea to people who simply have a low vocabulary. These people can still feel intensely and express themselves in other ways than with adjectives or verbs. The Party wants to destroy individual emotion and Newspeak is just part of their plan. They use fear, indoctrination, and propaganda in conjunction with Newspeak to achieve their ends.
