Q:

What are examples of telegraphic speech?

A:

Examples of telegraphic speech include "sister visit" when the speaker means "My sister is going to visit," or saying "chair broken" when the speaker means to say "My chair is broken." Telegraphic speech entails using the essential points of meaning in a sentence or certain key words, without using what is considered the correct grammatical modifiers that connect the words together.

Telegraphic speech is a characteristic speech pattern of children and adults with speech disabilities, such as adults who may have suffered from strokes or some other form of damage to parts of the brain.
