* [[AynRand Ayn Rand's]] novella ''Anthem'' depicts a stagnant, collectivist future in which words like "I," "Me," "Mine," have been eliminated in favor of "We", "Us," and "Our." He/She has become "They." Other words have been eliminated as well, which the main character rediscovers from ancient texts. Rand's use of the basic concept even predates Orwell.

* Messaging services that charge by the letter give way to a variant of this trope, due to people having to get creative with conveying their thoughts clearly using as short a statement as possible. This happened with telegrams in the past, and it happened again with its SpiritualSuccessor, texting, which bore the oddly appropriate name of "textspeak." Before long, though, telegrams gave way to Morse code and then to telephones, and phone companies stopped charging based on message length and instead by quantity of messages, and this shortened, condensed means of speech died with them both times, though it took several years for textspeak to die down out (but is still in heavy use due to sheer convenience).
