I've been looking for the page that Alamy posted a while ago on the preferred, or most effective ways of describing ages such as '3 year-old' etc. 

 

A link would be appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

Richard.

Thank you.  I needed that too.

One more question, if you please.

 

I've been struggling to guess childrens' ages (despite having two of our own!). Once they become teenagers, one forgets the differences between say, a seven and a nine year-old.

 

Now in the guidelines to the terms mentioned in the link above, I see other contributors might be putting eg. 7-9 which is what searchers seem to be looking more for rather than '7' or '8' or '9'. 

 

Thoughts? 

 

Thanks,

Richard

The problem with some of the suggested terms is that they can bring up false results. For instance if you are describing a 20 year old as a young woman the images also come up in searches for old woman because Alamy has not activated the "..."

Agreed. I've ignored the old when not accompanied by the hyphen (eg. year-old).
