Historical Terminology Used to Represent Older People.
Covey, Herbert C.
Gerontologist, v28 n3 p291-97 Jun 1988
Semantically traced, over time, terms used to represent old people, aging, and effects of aging. Major themes found included differences between terms used for old men and old women; ambiguity of terms; older people subjected to more pejoratives than in past; and terms characterizing the old being focused on negative and debilitative effects of old age.
