    I'm from Yorkshire and say "mam" mostly, and "mum" sometimes. I hate when people from my region say "mom" it's too americanised. Same as people saying "math". It's mathS!

    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.

    I say Mom because I'm a Brummie. I always have and I think I always will. It's absolutely nothing to do with Americanism, and the majority of people round here say Mom as well.

    What's the big deal?

    I think both 'Mum' and 'Mom' are disgusting.

    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 !
    I'm a West Midlander, we all say 'mom' around here.
