Abstract:

The book explores the role of age in communication under consideration ofvarious age groups, genres, cultures and languages, and demonstrates thegrowing potential of age-related research for linguistic and socialanalyses that is founded on a more comprehensive and systematic basis thanhas been practiced so far. The volume establishes a point of contact withthe work of Coupland, Giles and associates starting in the 1980s, and showshow it can be extended today to go beyond the early focus on detrimentalaspects of aging. The contributors address social communication within andacross age cohorts in all major age categories: the elderly, middle-aged,teenagers and children. The social skewing of the research presentedexplains the volume's focus on the discursive construction of socialidentities, with age implicated as a viable controller of how social actionis strategically deployed for alignment and alienation, accommodation anddivergence. The authors emphasize that a discourse construction of age andageing is particularly important in the face of new challenges ofglobalization, increased human mobility and rising intergenerational conflicts.
