Geriatric Psychology on Memory - Dictionary of Arguments

Upton I 141
Memory/Geriatric psychology/Upton: Loss of memory skills may also result in problems with word retrieval; for example, the tip of the tongue phenomenon, which is typified by feeling confident that a word is known but is just out of reach (Thornton and Light, 2006)(1). This decline is often compensated for by using very familiar words and much shorter sentences (Burke and Shafto. 2008)(2).
