Summary This article reflects on Pauline McGovern's experience as a hearing-impaired participant observer in a small voluntary organisation. She chose this method to explore practice in the organisation holistically, because it fitted with my research aim which was to look at how the group developed over time. The analysis was influenced by the work of Pierre Bourdieu on personal orientation to social situations (habitus) and the resources that people use in interaction (capitals)
