    1) I've heard other terms used, "limited English," for example. But they seem just as bad, as if everything is limited, including people's perceptions of the limited-English speaker. 2) I heard myself saying this: "Not waste money that way." My husband was with us as well, and he didn't notice any switch in my English. 3) I spend a great deal of my time thinking about the power of language--the way it can evoke an emotion, a visual image, a complex idea, or a simple truth. 4) And it was perhaps the first time she had heard me give a lengthy speech, using the kind of English I have never used with her.

    Definitely 1 because it is the only answer that displays a one-sided opinion about language. :)
