The general term "Young adult" refers to different age groups based on context:

  • "Young adult" is a euphemism for an adolescent. The usage was introduced in the late 20th century / early 21st century due to a growing reluctance on the part of some people to refer to this age group as children, or even by older terms for the intermediate period between adulthood and such as adolescent, youth or teenager.
