Summary Proposes a framework for characterising communication styles - the western middle class style is characterised as being dyadic and contained while Aboriginal communication styles are characterised as communal and continuous; discusses the possible consequences the differences in interactional/communication styles might have in various communication situations, for example in classrooms, courts, public meetings, negotiation; questions whether the characterisations might apply to text and discourse
