"Old Age Doesn't Come Alone": Discursive Representations of Health-in-Aging in Geriatric Medicine.
Coupland, Justine; Coupland, Nikolas
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v39 n1 p81-95 1994
Considers traditional approaches to identity across life span, then presents discursive perspective showing how, during interaction, individuals actively construct age-salient identities for themselves and others through talk. Conversational processes of age-identity management are explored in corpus of geriatric medical outpatient consultations. Concludes that physicians may deny age-relevance of medical troubles that patients routinely endorse. (Author/NB)
