Walmartspeak

noun; blending and clipping
Language and words used by the Walmart Corporation
 
Alludes to the language Newspeak in Orwell's 1984, to associate Walmart with the notorious aspects of the language in the novel. Newspeak was notorious for opposing and eliminating free thought, possibly similar to Walmart eliminating local competition to its stores by selling at extremely low prices. The term seems to associate the totaliitarianism in 1984 to Walmart's financial domination over weaker competitors.
Etymology : Clipping and blending of Walmart and Newspeak
