      All right, Lidaa. As far as I knew, code-switching applies to
      intersentential alternation and code mixing refers to alternation within the
      same sentence. I think the situation I described is an instance of
      code-switching according to domain. There are other instances in which
      code-switching can be used to indicate mood, intention, etc. Anyway, I
      entered this list to learn more so it's always enriching to read what others
      say.
