Adults' Diaries: Changes Made to Written Narratives across the Life Span.
Kemper, Susan
Discourse Processes, v13 n2 p207-23 Apr-Jun 1990
Examines diaries kept by 8 adults (born between 1856 and 1876) over a 70-year period of their lives. Analyzes the complexity of the narrative structure and the cohesion of the text. Finds that the diarists' narratives became structurally more complex across the life span, although they became less cohesive as ambiguous anaphors increased. (KEH)
