Сообщение своего возраста в старости: последствия для идентичности и лица

Социология власти. 2014. № 3. С. 181-206.
Коупленд Н., Коупленд Дж., Джилс Г.

The disclosure of age-in-years in later life is a frequent characteristic of intergenerational talk among first-acquaintances. Qualitative analyses of particular sequences show that considerations of age and of appraised health/wellbeing are structurally interrelated in these disclosures. Through this relationship, chronological age can function as a token in the bilateral negotiation of age-identities in discourse. Despite its ritualised character, age-disclosure can impact significantly on elderly people's self-esteem and on cross-generation attitudes.
