dc.description.abstract This paper examines young adult American, Ghanaian and Black South Africans' perceptions of communication and aging. Irrespective of cultural background as age of target increased, so did trait attributions of benevolence norms of politeness and deference, and communicative respect and avoidance, however attributions of personal vitality and communication satisfaction decreased linearly. Young adults ' reported avoidant communication with older people negatively predicted their conversational satisfaction and enjoyment of it. In addition, communicative respect was more strongly predictive of Africans' satisfaction while certain age stereotypes had contrastive effects for the Ghanaian and South African' enjoyment of intergenenerational communication. en
