    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.
    You live in the West Midlands for Uni-which is Nottingham?? Thats East Midlands dude.

    I use the word Mum (more often Mother now) but Mom seems like a more logical way of shortening it.

    Mother -> Mommy -> Mom
    Mother -> Mummy -> Mum ... Wait, where'd that U come from?!

    It's hardly one of the bad Americanisations.
    phonetically its muther, not m-o-ther

    It does annoy me when I see it written as "mom" by British people. Americanisms are creeping in everywhere.

    I have always said 'mum'. However I have been saying 'mother' a lot now. In Cardiff only one of my friends said 'mam', so I'm not sure how common that is now.

    But in the valleys pretty much everyone says mam. :yep:
