why does this bother you...?
Did you know, that right this second, hundreds of millions of people around the world are debating whether Goofy is an animal or some strange, mythical messiah-like disney creature. And that argument, whilst wholly fabricated, is about as relevant as this thread.
Does it matter how you say it, it all means the same thing........
I say Mum. But when I'm calling her it usually sounds like MAAAAAAAAAAM. Or Mother when I'm being extra nice. And sumtimes Mwmmy. No not a typo - Mwmmy. But never EVER 'Mom'.
MOM! There cannot possibly be a more annoying mispronunciation!
It's MUM! Goddamnit, it's our language, the americans ruined it!
"mum" is totally wrong
we dont say "muther" Oo
it probably has german orining "Mütter"
My mum sometimes calls her mum 'mom' (brummie)
my dad calls his mum 'mam' (welsh)
I use mum as I'm from a posh part of birmingham :-p
Mum is the norm around here, nobody says it differentely.
Even though Stoke is technically considered the west midlands, but I think it was just some high up person who slipped when they were drawing up the county borders.
