    They are far from synonyms.

    "Doublespeak" is deliberately trying to cover up the true nature of something by calling it something else.

    "Doubletalk" is trying to sound knowledgeable without knowing, or saying, anything with real content. This is often done for humor.

    The two Wikipedia pages linked to the words above will tell you more, as will most dictionaries.

    Since they're not synonyms, I can't suggest more synonyms for them. In any case, that would be making a list. We don't do that.
