      Sociolinguistically, social situations within which a speech interaction occurs may vary along a continuum of the most formal occasion of the social situations to go down to the most informal one. The same may also be true regarding the use of language; it also varies along a stylistic continuum from the most formal variety to go down to the most informal one. In other words, particular constellations of social situations tend to co-vary with a group of the linguistic subsystems of a major code called a language variety. Varieties within a major code, like Indonesian, constitute a stylistic continuum. Thus, there exists a continuum of social situations which exists side by side and co-vary with that of language varieties known as a stylistic continuum. This paper examines a style known as a language variety, its style markers, and other varieties with which it interacts, and the social meaning it carries in speech exchanges. The style under investigation is referred to as colloquial informal style of Indonesian (CISI), an informal variety which co-varies with the informal constellations of situational situations. This variety is worth of an academic inquiry on account of its insight into the interactions between different language varieties that make it up in the speech habits of Indonesian speakers in most informal social situations. As the informal social situations demand, speakers tend to shift to the use of this style so as to create congruent situational situations. This style may be recognized by the presence of its style markers which are becoming more established as part and parcel of the variety. The CISI is enriched by the presence of both codeswitching and code mixing which further highlights its concomitant informal social meaning. The data were collected from informal configurations of situational situations whereby interethnic speech participants interacted in particular time or topics and settings that concomitantly gave way to the use of the style.
