Music Theory QuickThink: 

 -     Modal mixture chords are called “borrowed chords”

-     Borrowed chords are those using the chords from the key’s parallel key (including minor ‘v’ and the chord built on the subtonic of the parallel key, rather than the leading tone)

-     Example: F Major’s expected chords are (F, gm , am , Bb, C, dm, eb dim) (I, ii, iii, IV, V, vi, vii°)  F Major’s borrowed chord possibilities are those that are found in the parallel  key of F minor (fm, g dim, Ab, bbm , cm, Db, Eb) (I, ii°, III, iv, v, VI, VII)
