* KurtVonnegut wrote in this style in a lot of his books, and it's very effective. In SlaughterhouseFive we see a reason/parallel to it: He's imitating the writing style of his fictional aliens, the Trafalmadorians.

* ''Thing Explainer'', a book that talks about a lot of things using only the thousand most used words. Written by RandalMonroe.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''{{Beetleborgs}}'' villain's description of [[NeverRecycleYourSchemes last time they tried this plan]]: "Been there. Done that. Got beat."
* ''Series/{{Screenwipe}}'' once did an hour special on writers. One of them was famed for writing realistic dialogue on ''Series/EastEnders'', his method was to write the sentence and then cut down any unnecessary words. So "See you later, we must do this again some time" would after a series of cuts simply become "Later".

* Some Latin American Spanish dialects (like Mexican Spanish) tend to be rather straightforward when compared with European Spanish, which is often the [[PurpleProse exact opposite]].
** In Spain people use the present perfect tense ("Yo he ido", I have gone) much more often than the simple past ("Yo fui", I went), which is more common in Latin America. Although the former ''is'' technically the right way to address certain past events, it's used so rarely outside of Spain that many native Spanish speakers are unaware that there's a difference. Spaniards keep insisting they're using the right grammar, while Mexicans just wonder why they use so many syllables to get to the same point as they do with two (or sometimes one).
