Of and About Ageing


In navigating different representations from a discursive and linguistic perspective, the book offers new vistas on the role of language in the personal and societal ageing experience addressing debates on ageism, anti-ageing, age care, active ageing, and political correctness in handling age-sensitive matters. The book demonstrates how culture, media and public discourse can produce stereotypical, unrealistic, and derogatory ways of talking about maturity, ageing, lifecourse, and senior citizenry that can be discriminatory or endorse imperative representations of old age.
