As a neutral macro-term, I prefer "code ALTERNATION". What I don't like is using "mixing" for anything, since it reinforces popular misconceptions of "confused" and "mixed-up", "agrammatical" language. CS in the Philippines is popularly called "Mix-Mix". Don and I grew up with pejorative and guilt-ridden referen- ces to "Tex-Mex", which he refuted with his research. --Rudy Troike
