* The Great Mizuti from the first ''BatenKaitos'' not only speaks in the [[ThirdPersonPerson third person]], insisting on being called "the Great Mizuti," rarely conjugates "to be" (i.e. "the Great Mizuti be invincible!") and will occasionally string together two related words after the end of a sentence.

** Both Foul Ole Ron in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels and Mrs Tachyon in ''[[Literature/JohnnyMaxwellTrilogy Johnny and the Bomb]]'' speak in nonsense phrases, a favorite being "Millenium hand and shrimp".

* In TheSwordOfTruth, Adie never declines the verb "be". It is a trait of her home language. Others from the same land were shown to speak in a similar manner, but occasionally use ordinary grammar.
