If they're using a lot of big words, it's SesquipedalianLoquaciousness. If they're tossing out [[HollywoodTourettes swear words]] or slang just as frequently, they're SophisticatedAsHell. The opposite of this, where a character speaks in highly-calculated terms, is SpockSpeak.

SpockSpeak. Often a symptom of an AmbiguousDisorder.

* Royce of the Camerata in ''VideoGame/{{Transistor}}''. Brilliant scientist, knows more about the Transistor than anyone alive, managed to temporarily control [[EldritchAbomination the Process]], but also tends to trail off in the middle of sentences and awkwardly pause to find words.

** ''TheLifeAquatic''
** ''EarthGirlsAreEasy'' arguably because he doesn't have much dialogue.
** ''ManOfTheYear'' where he portrayed a ''very'' fast-talking corrupt CEO's assistant. No stuttering, no tripping over words, and he's speaking about twice as quickly as he does anywhere else.

* Delbert in ''TreasurePlanet'' is an astrophysicist and constantly stammers. Considering he's played by DavidHydePierce that's unsurprising, though (apparently the role was written for him).

* Rick from ''RickAndMorty''. Granted, that show makes a point of averting RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic in general, but even ''then'', Rick gibbers a lot more than anyone else, often stopping only in order to belch, drink or fall asleep.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Fred, though she's good-natured enough to backpedal a bit in her speeches. Even when describing how she's about to kill someone!
