Language Facility and Aging.
Pearson, Frain Garfield
This study was designed to provide answers to three questions: Does language facility decrease as a person ages? What effect does educational level have on language facility as people age? and, Does language facility vary significantly between the sexes as age increases? Subjects for the study were 59 females and 30 males between the ages of 60 and 90 years. The measurement instrument used was the Language Facility Test, devised by John T. Dailey. Analysis of the results of testing indicated that language facility does decrease as a subject's age increases, that subjects' educational levels did not significantly affect their scores on the language facility test, and that scores did not vary significantly between the sexes, except among subjects 81-years-old and older (at which age females scored higher than males).
