Is there a name for a statement (either written or spoken) that excludes the subject "I"?
Some example statements are:
- "Happy to provide any additional information you might need."
- "Appreciate you taking the time to answer my question."
- "Obviously, just a huge fan of this site."
I often see this in business communication or situations where the writer/speaker is attempting some kind of "formality" and would love to have a name for the thing that irritates me. A linguistic explanation would be great, although a psychological explanation would be equally welcome.
