Title, Synopsis and Publications Investigators and Collaborators
Application of linguistic measures to free text comments.
We aim to investigate change in language related to ageing in Australian women. We ask, In the process of healthy ageing, can we expect individuals' language use to change? If so, are there general patterns in this change? Can we identify stages, and associate them with particular ages? . Our interdisciplinary research team will pioneer the application of new methods of computerised corpus-based linguistic analysis to written comments within the ALSWH data, in order to contribute to knowledge about Australia’s ageing population.
