Hey folks,

I have yet another question regarding ELAN. I'm trying to annotate my 
recordings for langauge, as the recordings contain a mix of two languages, and 
tagging utterances for whether they're in language x or y is going to be very 
important. The problem is that most of the time, a single utterance will 
contain elements from either language. So without splitting my current 
annotations, I need to figure out a way of having a child tier segment an 
annotation within the segment that the parent tier has. I don't know if this 
makes sense, so here's an example of what I want:

> [ngiya abim basic card arra]
> [I     have basic card that]
> [T   ][E             ][T   ]

Is this possible with the different linguistic types and stereotypes available?
