This is a reading rule. There are dozens of ordinary English words
which can be read in more than one way, or which have completely
different meanings. Consider the verbs "cleave" and "table".

"Normans, you are doubleplus ungood. You have committed many acts of
thinkcrime and sexcrime. You are obviously unsane, but I will heal you.
First of all, how did you become a thinkcriminal? There are no oldthinkers,
where do you get your thinks so speedwise?"
This language is English.
