Abstract:

This book presents a selection of contributions to the workshop "Linguistic
realization of evidentiality in European languages", held at the 30th
Annual Convention of the German Society of Linguistics in Bamberg (February
27-29, 2008), and additional papers, which have been especially
commissioned for this volume. Its main focus lies on providing further
empirical evidence about languages that have various - lexical as well as
grammatical - evidential expressions.

The papers in this volume will offer a cross-linguistic perspective on this
topic as they deal with a number of different language families and
languages: Romance languages (French, Spanish, Italian), Germanic languages
(Dutch, German, English, Icelandic), Baltic and Slavic languages, Greek,
Basque, and Turkish.

Abstract:

The book explores the role of age in communication under consideration of
various age groups, genres, cultures and languages, and demonstrates the
growing potential of age-related research for linguistic and social
analyses that is founded on a more comprehensive and systematic basis than
has been practiced so far. The volume establishes a point of contact with
the work of Coupland, Giles and associates starting in the 1980s, and shows
how it can be extended today to go beyond the early focus on detrimental
aspects of aging. The contributors address social communication within and
across age cohorts in all major age categories: the elderly, middle-aged,
teenagers and children. The social skewing of the research presented
explains the volume's focus on the discursive construction of social
identities, with age implicated as a viable controller of how social action
is strategically deployed for alignment and alienation, accommodation and
divergence. The authors emphasize that a discourse construction of age and
ageing is particularly important in the face of new challenges of
globalization, increased human mobility and rising intergenerational conflicts.
