Fascinating article and analysis.  My question is: if I am working out cerebrally more when in so-called "bilingual mode," why is it easier for me to switch between languages when I'm really tired or have a migraine, rather than finding the word in one language or another?

In any case,I rather like the vision of the fittest surviving by speaking a new blanguage.
