Debunking myths about language mixing

Almost all bilinguals do it, but no one likes it -- not teachers, not parents, not even the speakers themselves. They think it reflects a poor command of one or both of the languages.

These opinions are strong and widespread, especially when they concern the influence of English on Canadian French. But is there really cause for concern?
