    Abstract

    Matras's principal claim is that the variation in the composition of Mixed Languages (MLs) can be understood with reference to ``natural function-based compartmentalisation of linguistic structures''. As there are close connections between MLs and other types of language contact, in particular code-switching (CS), it is important that we examine this claim in that broader context. I will begin by considering some of the dif®culties in specifying what constitutes an ML and some of the features they share with CS.
