The practice of alternating between two or more languages or varieties of language in conversation:

Tween Afrricentrist Education and the Chicago Public School system in the 1970s,tween Last Grave At Dimbaza and Mastery Learning, tween North Lawndale and North Oakland, tween the Center For Inner City Studies and The Center For Sex And Culture.

Well, Here I Am.
