* The title to track to ''The Downward Spiral'' by NineInchNails. The lyrics are sparse, spoken instead of sung, and are mostly bare description. "Eraser," from the same album, could count as well - it only has a few lines, all two words long with just a verb and a noun (either "you" or "me").
* NeilDiamond's Solitary Man summarizes his failed relationships in this style. It's devastating.

* The Spartans, whose simplicity of speech gave rise to the word "laconic," after their dialect of Greek. For example, when Philip II of Macedon threatened them with the message: "If we enter Sparta, we will [[RapePillageAndBurn raze all your buildings and ravage all your women]]," Sparta sent back the answer, "If." Philip, as well as his son {{Alexander|TheGreat}}, left Sparta alone.
