It's so good to see you again! And... how the children have grown! I hardly recognized them.  

 

Ye-e-s... Tom’s almost as tall as Fred now. And Dot's three inches taller than I am.  

 

Well, they say each generation is taller than the last. Maybe that’s what they mean by the generation gap.

CULTURAL BACKGROUND

Generation gap is a relatively new expression that is much used -perhaps overused- today. It signifies the differences between one generation and another that result in lack of understanding and lack of genuine communication. The phrase generally applies to the generation of today's parents and the generation of their teenage (or older) sons and daughters. The average time represented by a generation in the United States is about 25 to 30 years.
