{{Supertrope}} to the [[RaceTropes more racial]] AsianSpeekeeEngrish and TontoTalk. Unrelated to YouCantGetYeFlask, except in sense that we suck compared to [[MasterComputer computer overlords]]. Compare to HulkSpeak and StrangeSyntaxSpeaker. If the speaker is otherwise very capable in their own language, then it is EloquentInMyNativeTongue. The TropeNamer is WorldOfWarcraft.

There's actually a scientific word for this kind of speech pattern: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agrammatism agrammatic speech]]. [[IThoughtItMeant Not the same]] as ungrammatical, but [[NoExceptYes one of the worse kinds]].

It's also related to the linguistic phenomenon known as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pidgin Pidgin]], where two cultures that do not share a language may cobble together a composite way of speaking to make trade easier.

This trope comes from two sources. First, English is a highly analytic language with little in the way of inflection (altering the spelling/pronunciation of various words to imply things such as case, number, tense, grammatical gender, etc.), so it requires a lot of words and many small auxillary particles to convey the same information some languages could in much fewer words. For instance, "no take candle!" would be a perfectly legitimate sentence in Latin (as would "no candle take!"). The second comes from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pidgin_language pidgin languages]], highly simplified languages used by groups without a common language to communicate. Pidgins are stripped down to the absolute bare minimum of grammar needed to get one's point across, to make them easier to learn.

* From the ''Gensokyo20XX'' series, we have this initially with an age-regressed Reimu in a combination of HulkSpeak, which is justified seeing as she age-regressed to formative years and was imprisoned being denied virtually no contact, aside from being injected with needles and apparently being brain-washed, thus she had to relearn her language skills, communicating more on the level that rehabilitated WildChild might. The same also applied to Maribel and Renko, although with a more expanded vocabulary. This is mostly the case with Youmu, in 20XXV, who combines this, HulkSpeak, and TerseTalker, if her "Muhs" are translated, although this played straight, when she says, "Fuck you ass, Youmu do what want!"

* This is played straight ''within'' the ''BattleTech'' universe. The Clans, in their fanatical devotion to restoring the ancient Star League, speak strictly in Star League Standard English (with some new terminology and shorthand as needed to reflect their unique culture, but ''never'' contractions). Conversely, they consider the mishmashing of languages used by the Successor States and the mediocre quality of their English as further proof of their descent into barbarism.

* Tabletop RPG ''Land of Og'', and its more playable successor ''Og: Unearthed Edition'', limits its caveman characters to only a few words while speaking in character. Each character has a different set of words they can use, such as "You", "Rock", "Stick", "Thing", "Hairy", "Bang", "Go", and "Verisimilitude".

* The ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''[=/=]''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7263810/1/The-Left-Hand-of-the-Death-God The Left Hand of the Death God]]'' has Ichigo Kurosaki speak this way. In his defense, he's been in a dungeon for a very long time ([[TheFogOfAges so long he can't remember how long]]) with no one to talk to, so he's out of practice. He can speak clearly inside his inner world.
