* In one of her standup acts, MargaretCho once joked that an advantage to being of Asian descent in the United States while going out to bars was that, when getting hit on by a guy in whom you are totally uninterested, you can state in You No Take Candle that you don't speak English.

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.

* ''TheGoonShow'' occasionally had "primitive" characters (Africans, Arabs, Red Indians, etc), who were usually played by the show's resident (black) singer Ray Ellington. Any UnfortunateImplications of this were partly subverted by Ellington's character clearly being more intelligent than any of the white characters. And it was the 1950s...

* From the ''Gensokyo20XX'' series, we have this initially with an age-regressed Reimu in a combination of HulkSpeak, which is justified seeing as she was initially 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 a 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!"

{{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, where kobolds, who wear candles on their heads to light their way in the mines, say this when attacked by a player character.

Compare to HulkSpeak and StrangeSyntaxSpeaker. If the character ''can'' speak proper language, but nevertheless chooses to speak like this for some reason, it's ElectiveBrokenLanguage. If the speaker is otherwise very capable in their own language, then it is EloquentInMyNativeTongue.
