Syme is working on the eleventh edition of the definitive Newspeak dictionary. Syme is very excited because he is destroying hundreds of words every day, "We're destroying words -- scores of them, hundreds of them, every day. We're cutting the language down to the bone." He is excited at the prospect of even less self-expression. Winston feels that he is much too excited for his own good.
