  Alternation (linguistics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Because the rule for determining which alternate to use depends on the surrounding sounds, the s/z alternation is called a phonologically-conditioned alternation.
The alternation between -s/-z and -en is a grammatically-conditioned alternation.
The alternation between s/z/iz is called an automatic alternation because using the wrong alternate in the wrong situation would produce a phonologically illegal English word -- 'fishs' is very hard to say and is not legal English.

 alternation of generations - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about alternation of generations
The gametes fuse to form a diploid zygote which develops into a new sporophyte; thus the sporophyte and gametophyte alternate.
All higher plants are sporophytes, and the gametophyte is not seen because it completes its life within the body of the sporophyte.
The life cycles of certain animals (such as the jellyfish) are sometimes said to show alternation of generations, but this is rarely as regular and clearly defined as in plants.

 Alternation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alternation is a solitaire card game which is played using two decks of playing cards.
The object of the game is to release the Aces as they become available, creating foundations, and to then build up each suit from the Ace.
A sequence or part of a sequence can be moved as a unit.

 Computational Complexity: Favorite Theorems: Alternation
An alternating Turing machine is a nondeterministic machine with states marked either existential or universal.
Alternation causes a shift in the time-space hierarchy of classes: P = AL, PSPACE = AP, EXP = APSPACE, EXPSPACE = AEXP, etc. More importantly the two fundamental resource bounds of time and space are really just the same concept on different models.
Also alternating machines set the stage for interactive proof systems which led to probabilistically checkable proofs, perhaps the most productive line of research in complexity over the past fifteen years.

 § 24.135 Wine premises alternation
The proprietor of a bonded winery or bonded wine cellar may alternate all or a portion of wine premises for use as a taxpaid wine bottling house or use as taxpaid wine premises.
The proprietor shall, prior to the initial alternation of the premises, identify by portable signs or tags, or by any other method or manner satisfactory to the regional director (compliance), either all taxpaid wine on taxpaid wine premises or taxpaid wine bottling house premises or all untaxpaid wine on bonded wine premises.
Authority for the alternation of bonded wine premises, taxpaid wine bottling house premises, taxpaid wine premises, or other premises qualified under 26 U.S.C chapter 51 is conditioned on compliance by the proprietor with the provisions of this section.

 Job alternation leave — Jyväskylän yliopisto
The project analysed the impact of job alternation leave to overall employment, and specifically to the selection of substitutes and their employability, to overall well-being of the alternators and whether the use of job alternation leave affected overall work career and activities of the work organizations.
The aim of the present study was to analyse the effects of the job alternation leave system on the well-being and overall length of the work career of the job alternators, as well as the selection of the substitute workers and their later employability, and the overall effects of the system on the work organizations.
The personal characteristics of the alternators and substitutes have not changed substantially since the beginning of the alternation leave system, although the mean age of the alternators has risen.

The type of alternation under primary consideration in this chapter is the well-studied causative and non-causative alternation (e.g., a causative-inchoative alternation) or the transitivity alternation in terms of the number of the verb’s argument (e.g., a transitive-intransitive alternation).
Sentences in (1) involve a shift in the verb’s transitivity and the syntactic representation of arguments; the syntactic subject in the intransitive sentence in (1a) occurs as the syntactic object of the sentence in the transitive counterpart, (1b).
The alternation shown in (1) is often characterized as a causative-inchoative alternation due to the semantic relation between the two sentences; the intransitive sentence(the ice melted(denotes a change of state that the ice undergoes, and the transitive sentence (Sally melted the ice(describes the event in which Sally brings about or causes this change of state.

 On transitivity alternation in Japanese and English:
It is part of diathesis alternations, a well-known verbal behavior which, by definition, involves shifts in the syntactic representations of arguments such as dative alternations and locative alternations (Levin 1993:2).
I would argue for the non-lexicalist view of the English transitivity alternation in that it is syntactically represented in a strict sense and thus speakers of the language need to rely on syntactic configuration to determine whether a given alternant is transitive or intransitive.
Recall that one major syntactic characteristic of the transitivity alternation is that the object of a transitive predicate corresponds to the subject of an intransitive predicate (cf.

 Alternation between Development Modes: reinforcing dynamic conception through functional classification of ...
In the right-hemisphere approach, an interesting parallel to the fluid behaviour of plasma is to be found in the important taoist concept of "ch'i" (or ki), which as an essentially intangible form of "energy" defies all exercises in definition.
It is by identification with ch'i that an individual develops a way of alternating appropriately between the two modes without the normal discontinuity of awareness.
It is rather to discover "models of alternation" (or oscillation) to contain the development process in relation to different alternatives which may be periodically adopted.

The multicellular haploid plant structure is called the gametophyte, which is formed from the spore and give rise to the haploid gametes.
The fluctuation between these diploid and haploid stages that occurs in plants is called the alternation of generations.
The way in which the alternation of generations occurs in plants depends on the type of plant.

 Development through Alternation
It is in the dynamics of an "androgynous" pattern of alternation or resonance between two or more such modes that the possibilities for a planetary meta-answer lie.  But, as with the ideal of marriage, there are many well-recognized patterns of unfruitful organized relationship which are valuable to the non-transformative existence of both partners.
In terms of development through alternation, focus on not-doing (as a particular preference) must alternate with focus on doing.

 Regex Tutorial - Alternation with The Vertical Bar
The alternation operator has the lowest precedence of all regex operators.
That is, it tells the regex engine to match either everything to the left of the vertical bar, or everything to the right of the vertical bar.
Because the regex engine is eager, it considers the entire alternation to have been successfully matched as soon as one of the options has.

This alternation of generations creates a morphologically complex life cycle, depending on the similarity or dissimilarity of the GPT and SPT, the relationship of these to each other, and the nature of the spores.
There can be an alternation of similar generations, isomorphic alternation of generations, where the GPT and SPT are morphologically identical, except for the reproductive structures.
On the other hand, there can also be an alternation of dissimilar generations, heteromorphic alternation of generations, when the GPT and SPT are morphologically different.

Thank you to all those who replied to my query (5-156) about cases where an inflectional category is realised by 'stem alternation alone', including prosodic alternation.
A slightly weaker version of the claim would be that, even if both affixation and various forms of mutation or stem alternation can expound inflectional categories, nevertheless they behave differently with respect to various principles of the grammar.
The lesser, I think, is that even the most processual looking alternations can, with varying degrees of ingenuity, be reformulated as 'things', e.g.
