WHAT DOES NORMALCY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

normalcy

Return to normalcy

A "return to normalcy" was United States presidential candidate Warren G. Harding's campaign promise in the election of 1920. Although detractors believed that the word was a neologism as well as a malapropism coined by Harding, there was contemporary discussion and evidence found that normalcy had been listed in dictionaries as far back as 1857. Harding's promise was to return the United States to pre-world war mentality; without the thought of war tainting the minds of the American people. To sum up his points, he states, "America's present need is not heroics, but healing; not nostrums, but normalcy; not revolution, but restoration; not agitation, but adjustment; not surgery, but serenity; not the dramatic, but the dispassionate; not experiment, but equipoise; not submergence in internationality, but sustainment in triumphant nationality".
