Hey Tamara,

I have read a few articles about conversational code switching as it
pertains to Spanish/English speakers who live near the Mexico border in the
US. For them, code switching and when it occurs acts as an important
signifier in the meaning of the dialog--certainly as important as
inflection, it seems.  I would imagine that the poly-coded nature of your
texts has similar implications.

Since my French is  a little rusty from disuse, perhaps you wouldn't mind
explaining a bit of your thinking behind using a pastiche of language in
your work.
