About:

I overheard a conversation a while ago in which a person, speaking into his phone, said ok about nine times, then shit once, then ok a few more times and hung up. From his side of the conversation, two words sufficed. Clearly more nuance could be added by varying the words, but a person can communicate using just a few words. If both sides limited to just "OK" and "shit" it might take a while to be subtle points across, but it would be interesting to watch.
