    Seriously is anyone else getting annoyed by the americanised abuse of our lovely english language by some posters on this forum.

    It is MUM and not MOM as so many of you foul mouthed fools are saying.

    Why do you do it??????
    please explain !

    In the West Midlands it's 'mom'. That's the way it's pronounced, that's the way it's spelt. 'Mum' is a slang term anyway. In parts of the North and in Ireland they say 'mam'. Stop trying to impose your misguided vernacular imperialism on other people. I'll say mom if I want to, all my friends say it, I was taught to say it at school, it is how it is spelt here. LEAVE MY MOMMY ALONE :hmmm:

    This irritates me to no end. I dont mind people saying mum, mummy, mother, mam etc, because people are actually brought up to say these not just suddenly adopt an american term for a family member. I live in the west midlands for uni (notts) and nobody says mom so thats utter tosh.
