Hi, I was just wondering if "alternatively" could be used to substitute the word "alternately" in the following sentence. I have given the context so that the meaning intended should be clear enough. It is about switching from one language to another when one speaks. "The second view of code-switching is that both languages are alternately 'activated' and when the word in a sentence begin to come from the second language, this indicates that the first language has been 'switched off' and the second language 'switched on'. In such a view, both languages are genuine base languages." I feel that what it is trying to say here is that you change from A to B and perhaps to A again. Therefore, for this reason, only "alternately" should be used. But apparently, someone seems to think that "alternatively" can be used to replace "alternately" here. What do you think? Thanks a lot.
