The Words of Age by Decade

Today I learned of a group of words that describe the age of a person by decade from watching a television series. Will you join me in this discovery?

@adamsdesk I had heard and used Octogenarian before, but I was totally oblivious to the rest of them. So a huge TIL

@thelad Really? Do you use Octogenarian in writing, speaking or both? Hey, that's great.

@adamsdesk i used it when I was a health care worker in a nursing home,
so it was used by the nurses and it was just something I picked up as a way to explain "people of that age". I don't remember if it was ever written.

@thelad Oh okay. That makes sense to me being used in health or even science industry. Thank you for explaining.

A day without learning something new is a day wasted. :D
