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.;-)

If it is an inaugural speech, you have been elected or installed in some office. It is normal to first welcome any dignitaries (school principal, etc.), special attendees (parents, school board, etc.), and then the body of interest (fellow students etc.). Then, it is nice to thank the people who supported you. If there were other candidates, you could then say something nice about them (if there is anything nice to say).

After that, a short summary of your ideas and your goals is order. Then more thank yous and some pledges make a good ending.

Remember the following:

Speak loudly so that everyone will hear you.
Speak clearly so that everyone will understand you.
Speak briefly so that everyone will love you.

:lol:

I'm afraid there are many ways of making nouns- we can often add suffixes like -ness, -ity, tion.
