    The adjective "bitter" works better with "dispute", but the sentence doesn't work with "I". A dispute is a debate or argument, which requires another person (unless you are schizophrenic ).

    We are having a bitter dispute over/about money, and our language has been harsh. :wink:

    I don't think "harsh" fits very well there, but I would understand the meaning. :wink:

    I agree with Mike- 'bitter dispute' is an expression we use. I wouldn't use 'harsh' in this sentence.
