Telegraphic speech, according to linguistics and psychology, is speech during the two-word stage of language acquisition in children, which is laconic and efficient.

In a telegram, writing in flowry language involves hours of deciphering and translation into Morse code. To avoid doing so, telegrams are written in two to three words, without conjunctions, articles, so they get the point across with the fewest amount of words and letters.

As children develop language, they speak similarly: when a child says "Water Now!" it is understood, that the child means, "I would appreciate a glass of water, please."
