Age in Social Interaction. On Constructivist Epistemologies and the Social Psychology of Language.
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v7 n1 p49-56 1997
Discusses work on age in interaction in terms of constructivist epistemologies, relating research on ageism to work on adult-child interaction in a cultural comparative perspective. By focusing on identity in interaction, applied linguistics combines constructivist developments with close textual analyses and maintains that it is possible to avoid constructivist reductionism as well as naive essentialism.
