Can you tell the age of a writer by their work?


Lots of people have no profile picture online or use an avator. Do you think you can roughly gauge a writer's age by their words?

    Thankyou Larry Wall for reading and for answering.

    I smiled when you said 'I was young--once.'

    I know how you feel.

    Thankyou Grace-Wolf-30.

    Someone had said earlier that a writer could adapt their style and language to the age group of their target audience.

    So it seems you could be right.

    Ah very good answer.

    Some old souls are in young bodies and some older people never mature.

    I suppose it all depends on the individual.
