I had a question on the usage of alternate vs. alternative from an overseas friend which I had a difficult time answering. There are cases where the words are used as adjectives where one should be used over the other, but are there any general rules for this? In particular, in a sentence such as "We may need to seek an alternate/alternative supplier if your company cannot support our needs", does it matter which is used?
