Life-Span Changes to Adults' Language: Effects of Memory and Genre.
Kemper, Susan; And Others
Applied Psycholinguistics, v10 n1 p49-66 Mar 1989
Comparison of oral and written language samples collected from young and elderly adults revealed an age-related decrease in language complexity. Better-educated subjects had higher vocabulary test scores and produced longer utterances. Subjects with greater memory capacity produced more complex utterances and used more right- and left-branching clauses. (Author/CB)
