Switching languages when under a time-crunch ...particularly if there's one language you know inside-and-out. While learning the syntaxes of other languages is generally trivial (especially if you know at least one other language inside-and-out), the initial forays into that new language will positively reek of the programmer's "home" language.

To be honest, "language" is a great term for what's used to program in, since, like spoken languages, you will tend to have an "accent" in your non-native. language.
