Intergenerational Talk and Communication with Older People.
Giles, Howard; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v34 n4 p271-97 1992
Overviews evolving program of interdisciplinary, multimethod research concerned with intergenerational communication. Concludes from studies that young people process and respond to speech of older people in stereotypical ways. Uses lifespan and intercultural perspectives to argue that communicative patterns observed in studies are sometimes counterproductive and can foster negative attitudes toward aging. (Author/NB)
