While Australia proudly defines itself as a linguistically diverse, multicultural society, not much is known about how Australians that come from different cultural backgrounds and speak different languages communicate in their everyday family life in parent-parent, parent-child(ren) or child-child interactions. This research project aims to enhance the understanding of Australia’s multilingual social reality, by providing a voice to families from two distinct speech communities.
