Abstract Presents an overview of intercultural communication in English between native-born Australians and immigrants/sojourners, particularly those from the West Pacific rim (Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese). What emerges clearly in this context is that ethnic group membership on its own is not adequate to explain intercultural accommodation in language and vocal communication. The interaction of ethnicity with other group memberships (sex, age, occupational status), the context, behaviour, and salience of each of these, must also be taken into account.
