You're probably just not very good at speaking it

I’ve seen this graph around and while English is the most efficient, I have doubts that it was always this way. When reading older texts (2+ centuries ago) the density seems to be drawn out and wordier with more fluff.

This might be my dismal education speaking though, but it seems that older texts have more variance in sentence construction, substituting subject for pronouns is so commonplace that subject almost gets lost, while modern English tends toward stricter SVO.
