While giving speeches one may be concise or not. I think there was a word for being very concise while conveying a lot of information. That's it - information condensed is as few words as possible. Is there a word for that in English?

  • Google concise synonym and take your choice. (But concise pretty much says it.) – Ronald Sole Jul 8 '20 at 10:29
  • There's a full phrase that's sometimes used: economy of speech. – Canadian Yankee Jul 8 '20 at 12:34
  • @CanadianYankee this is closest one. I hoped there's a single word for this. – szborows Jul 8 '20 at 12:46

Are you looking for succinct?

marked by compact precise expression without wasted words

  • This word indeed is right, but I'm looking for a verb version of it. Like in the comment above with "economy of speech". – szborows Jul 8 '20 at 12:47
