A book chapter by Shirley Brice Heath which outlines the changing perceptions and definitions of family, literacy, and community she encountered in her research. Largely reflective of her linguistic anthropological perspectives, this resource may appeal to practitioners or researchers interested in how linguistic behaviour can impact perception, and how both may change over time.
