From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
(Orwell:Rapp) The language (a dialect of English, say philologists) employed by fans in communication; the contractions, coined words, and adopted expressions met with among fans; one of the glossaries (by Art Rapp in 1948, revised by Redd Boggs and Lee Hoffman in 1952) of the same name defining common expressions in the tongue. Tho often spoken, Fanspeak is demonstrated by its construction to be basically a literary language; such things as Ackermanisms and the significant variations in spelling of many fan words are unintelligible -- and commonly undetectable -- off the duplicated page.
