Description: In prior work, we discovered that adults spontaneously distance their language when regulating their emotions (Nook, Schleider, & Somerville, 2017). In effect, adults use fewer first-person singular pronouns (e.g., "I", "me", "mine") and present-tense verbs when engaging in cognitive reappraisal, and people who more strongly distance their language more successfully regulated their emotions. In this project, we examine the developmental trajectory of this process.
