Abstract: Every almost periodic function is the uniform limit of polynomials of weakly mixing functions. If $ \mathcal{B}$ and $ \mathcal{F}$ are uniformly closed translation invariant algebras of purely weakly mixing functions and almost periodic functions respectively, and $ \mathcal{A}$ is the algebra generated by $ \mathcal{B}$ and $ \mathcal{F}$, then every weakly mixing function in $ \mathcal{A}$ belongs to $ \mathcal{B}$.
