Publication language


This volume considers language as a tool to constitute and define our identities across the lifespan, and even as a means to create and manage our concept of the various stages of life, emphasizing the notion of the developing self. The three main sections deal with: discursively formulating the lifespan; achieving control, transition and continuity; and discourse and intergenerational relationships.
