    Is this from a specific book or is it just a random name?

    You need to include the passage that goes along with these questions. And try not to just ask for the answers. You will not learn that way.

    Amy Tan came from an immigrant family, so her mother's English was not fluent or grammatically correct. Sometimes, one could understand her mother's meaning but other times her mother's English came out twisted and demonstrated creative uses of vocabulary. Being schooled in the U.S., Amy's English was proper.
