  1. concise

    Anything short or brief is of relatively small extent. That which is concise (Latin con-, with, together, and cædo, cut) is trimmed down, and that which is condensed (Latin con-, with, together, and densus, thick) is, as it were, pressed together, so as to include as much as possible within a small space. That which is compendious (Latin com-, together, and pendo, weigh) gathers the substance of a matter into a few words, weighty and effective. The succinct (Latin succinctus, from sub-, under, and cingo, gird; girded from below) has an alert effectiveness as if girded for action. The summary is compacted to the utmost, often to the point of abruptness; as, we speak of a summary statement or a summary dismissal. That which is terse (Latin tersus, from tergo, rub off) has an elegant and finished completeness within the smallest possible compass, as if rubbed or polished down to the utmost. A sententious style is one abounding in sentences that are singly striking or memorable, apart from the context; the word may be used invidiously of that which is pretentiously oracular. A pithy utterance gives the gist of a matter effectively, whether in rude or elegant style.

How to use concise in a sentence?

  1. William Jr. Strunk:

    Vigorous writing is concise.

  2. P. J. O'Rourke:

    The Tenth Commandment sends a message to socialists, to egalitarians, to people obsessed with fairness, to American presidential candidates in the year 2000 - to everyone who believes that wealth should be redistributed. And that message is clear and concise: Go to Hell.

  3. Oscar Auliq-Ice:

    Poetry allows poets to convey complex feelings in a concise and artistic manner, making it an effective medium for self-expression and catharsis.

  4. William Strunk Jr., Elements of Style:

    Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.

  5. Lizzy Bowring:

    It's a slimmer silhouette -- much more concise and much more grown-up, it isn't a granola look, as one might say.
