With the deep, unconscious sigh 定语从句which not even the nearness of the telescreen could prevent him from uttering 时间从句when his day’s work started, Winston pulled the speakwrite towards him, blew the dust from its mouthpiece, and put on his spectacles. Then he unrolled and clipped together four small cylinders of paper 定语从句which had already flopped out of the pneumatic tube on the right-hand side of his desk.

In the walls of the cubicle there were three orifices. To the right of the speakwrite, a small pneumatic tube for written messages, to the left, a larger one for newspapers; and in the side wall, within easy reach of Winston’s arm, a large oblong slit protected by a wire grating. This last was for the disposal of waste paper. Similar slits existed in thousands or tens of thousands throughout the building, not only in every room but at short intervals in every corridor. For some reason they were nicknamed memory holes. 时间从句When one knew that any document was due for destruction, or even when one saw a scrap of waste paper lying about, it was an automatic action to lift the flap of the nearest memory hole and drop it in, whereupon it would be whirled away on a current of warm air to the enormous furnaces 定语从句which were hidden somewhere in the recesses of the building.

Winston examined the four slips of paper 定语从句which he had unrolled. Each contained a message of only one or two lines, in the abbreviated jargon — not actually Newspeak, but consisting largely of Newspeak words — 定语从句which was used in the Ministry for internal purposes. They ran:

times 17.3.84 bb speech malreported africa rectify

times 19.12.83 forecasts 3 yp 4th quarter 83 misprints verify current issue

times 14.2.84 miniplenty malquoted chocolate rectify

times 3.12.83 reporting bb dayorder doubleplusungood refs unpersons rewrite fullwise upsub antefiling

With a faint feeling of satisfaction Winston laid the fourth message aside. It was an intricate and responsible job and had better be dealt with last. The other three were routine matters, though the second one would probably mean some tedious wading through lists of figures.

温斯顿不自觉地深深地叹了一口气,把听写器拉了过来,吹掉话筒上的尘土,戴上了眼镜。即使电幕近在旁边,也阻止不了他在每天开始工作的时候叹这口气。接着他把已经从办公桌右边气力输送管中送出来的四小卷纸打了开来,夹在一起。

在他的小办公室的墙上有三个口子。听写器右边的一个小口是送书面指示的气力输送管;左边大一些的口子是送报纸的;旁边墙上温斯顿伸手可及的地方有一个椭圆形的大口子,上面蒙着铁丝网,这是供处理废纸用的。整个大楼里到处都有这样的口子,为数成千上万,不仅每间屋子里都有,而且每条过道上相隔不远就有一个。这种口子外号叫忘怀洞。这样叫不无理由。凡是你想起有什么文件应该销毁,甚至你看到什么地方有一张废纸的时候,你就会顺手掀起近旁忘怀洞的盖子,把那文件或废纸丢进去,让一股暖和的气流把它吹卷到大楼下面不知什么地方的大锅炉中去烧掉。

温斯顿看了一下他打开的四张纸条。每张纸条上都写着一两行字的指示,用的是部里内部使用的缩写——不完全是新话,不过大部分是新话的辞汇构成的。它们是:

泰晤士报17.3.84老大讲话误报非洲核正

泰晤士报19.12.83预测三年计划83年四季度排错核正近期

泰晤士报14.2.84富部误引巧克力核正

泰晤士报3.12.83报道老大命令双加不好提到非人全部重写存档前上交

温斯顿把第四项指示放在一旁,心中有一种隐隐的得意感觉。这是一件很复杂、负责的工作,最好放到最后处理。

其它三件都是例行公事,尽管第二件可能需要查阅一系列数字,有些枯燥单调。
