Handbook of communication and aging research by Jon F Nussbaum( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 647 libraries worldwide
This second edition of the Handbook of Communication and Aging Research captures the ever-changing and expanding domain of aging research. Since it was first recognized that there is more to social aging than demography, gerontology has needed a communication perspective. Like the first edition, this handbook sets out to demonstrate that aging is not only an individual process but an interactive one. The study of communication can lead to an understanding of what it means to grow old. We may age physiologically and chronologically, but our social aging--how we behave as social actors toward others, and even how we align ourselves with or come to understand the signs of difference or change as we age--are phenomena achieved primarily through communication experiences. Synthesizing the vast amount of research that has been published on communication and aging in numerous international outlets over the last three decades, the book's contributors include scholars from North America and the United Kingdom who are active researchers in the perspectives covered in their particular chapter. Many of the chapters work to deny earlier images of aging as involving normative decrement to provide a picture of aging as a process of development involving positive choices and providing new opportunities. A recuring theme in many chapters is that of the heterogeneity of the group of people who are variously categorized as older, aged, elderly, or over 65. The contributors review the literature analytically, in a way that reveals not only current theoretical and methodological approaches to communication and aging research but also sets the future agenda. This handbook will be of great interest to scholars and researchers in gerontology, developmental psychology, and communication, and, in this updated edition, will continue to play a key role in the study of
Language, society, and the elderly : discourse, identity, and ageing by Nikolas Coupland( Book )
17 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and held by 451 libraries worldwide
Contexts of accommodation : developments in applied sociolinguistics by Howard Giles( Book )
19 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 356 libraries worldwide
The theory of accommodation is concerned with motivations underlying and consequences arising from ways in which we adapt our language and communication patterns toward others. Since accommodation theory's emergence in the early l970s, it has attracted empirical attention across many disciplines and has been elaborated and expanded many times. In Contexts of Accommodation, accommodation theory is presented as a basis for sociolinguistic explanation, and it is the applied perspective that predominates this edited collection. The book seeks to demonstrate how the core concepts and relationships invoked by accommodation theory are available for addressing altogether pragmatic concerns. Accommodative processes can, for example, facilitate or impede language learners' proficiency in a second language as well as immigrants' acceptance into certain host communities; affect audience ratings and thereby the life of a television program; affect reaction to defendants in court and hence the nature of the judicial outcome; and be an enabling or detrimental force in allowing handicapped people to fulfil their communicative potential. Contexts of Accommodation will appeal to researchers and advanced students in language and communication sciences, as well as to sociolinguists, anthropologists, sociologists and psychologists

Age Identity and Elderly Disclosure of Chronological Age by Nikolas Coupland( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A study examined the discourse sequences and routines through which older adults disclose their ages to others. Data are drawn from conversations between women, who were asked to "get to know each other," and interviews with 34 women and 6 men in an elderly day care center. The second source group was used only to support the distribution evidence from the first group. Disclosure of chronological age (dca) occurred in 75% of the intergenerational conversations and in 80% of the elderly interviews. In the intergenerational conversations, the older participant generally disclosed her age first, and in the interviews, the older adult generally disclosed age early in the interaction, and often in response to questions about health. From the analysis of dca discourse contexts, it is concluded that elderly dca can be treated as functional and strategic. What particularly seems to distinguish early age-related discourse is the multiple-layering of identity and "face" considerations. Face can also be lost during dca sequences. It appears that dca offers an opportunity for elderly individuals to evaluate, within conversation, where they stand developmentally. (Mse)
