When I was growing up in America，I was ashamed of my mother’s Chinese Englis
A.Because of her English, she was often treated unfairly.People in department stores, at banks，and at restaurants did not take her seriously, did not give her good service, pretended not to understand her, or even acted as if they did not hear her. My mother has realized the limitations of her English as well.When I was fifteen, she used to have me call people on phone to pretend I was she.I was forced to ask for information or even to yell at people who had been rude to her、One time I had to call her stockbroker (股票经纪人).I said in an adolescent voice that was not very convincing, “This is Mrs.Tan.” And my mother was standing beside me, whispering loudly,“Why he don’t send me check already two week long. And then, in perfect English I said：“I’m getting rather concerned.You agreed to send the check two weeks ago，but it hasn’t arrived.” Then she talked more loudly.“What he want? I come to New York tell him front of his boss.” And so I turned to the stockbroker again,I can’t tolerate any more excuse.If I dont receive the check immediately, I am going to have to speak to your manager when I am in New York next week.” The next week we ended up in New York、While I was sitting there red-faced, my mother, the real Mrs.Tan, was shouting to his boss in her broken English. When I was a teenager, my mother’s broken English embarrassed me.But now, I see it differently.To me, my mother English is perfectly clear, perfectly natural.lt is my mother tongue.Her language, as I hear it, is vivid, direct, and full of observation and wisdom.lt was the language that helped shape the way I saw things, expressed ideas, and made sense of the world.

Science is a dominant theme in our culture.Since it touches almost every facet of our life, educated people need at least some acquaintance with its structure and operation.They should also have an understanding of the subculture in which scientists live and the kinds of people they are.An understanding of general characteristics of science as well as specific scientific concepts is easier to attain if one knows something about the things that excite and frustrate the scientist. This book is written for the intelligent student or lay person whose acquaintance with science is superficial? for the person who has been presented with science as a musty storehouse of dried facts; for the person who sees the chief objective of science as the production of gadgets; and for the person who views the scientist as some sort of magician.The book can be used to supplement a course in any science, to accompany any course that attempts to give an understanding of the modern world,or independent of any course---simply to provide a better understanding of science.We hope this book will lead readers to a broader perspective on scientific attitudes and a more realistic view of what science is, who scientists are, and what they do.It will give them an awareness and understanding of the relationship between science and our culture and an appreciation of the roles science may play in our culture.In addition, readers may learn to appreciate the relationship between scientific views and some of the values and philosophies that are pervasive in our culture. We have tried to present in this book an accurate and up-to-date picture of the scientific community and the people who populate it.That population has in recent years come to comprise more and more women、This increasing role of women in the scientific subculture is not an unique incident but, rather, part of the trend evident in all segments of society as more women enter traditionally male-dominated fields and make significant contributions、In discussing these changes and contributions? however, we are faced with a language that is implicitly sexist, one that uses male nouns or pronouns in referring to unspecified individuals.To offset this built-in bias, we have adopted the policy of using plural nouns and pronouns whenever possible and, when absolutely necessary, alternating he and she.This policy is far from being ideal, but it is at least an acknowledgment of the inadequacy of our language in treating half of the human race equally. We have also tried to make the book entertaining as well as informative.Our approach is usually informal.We feel，as do many other scientists，that we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously.As the reader may observe, we see science as a delightful pastime rather than as a grim and dreary way to earn a living. According to the passage,“scientific subculture”means__________.
A.cultural groups that are formed by scientists
