Telegraphic Speech

Overview

  • Telegraphic speech is a type of agrammatism that involves using short sentences that include nouns and verbs but omit articles, prepositions, and adjectives.
  • For example, a patient might say ‘man kick ball’ rather than ‘the man kicked the ball’.
    • Significance

    • Telegraphic speech is classically associated with expressive (Broca’s) aphasia.
