If "Mom" = "Mum"...
...does "Mommy" = "Mummy?" Huh

I have had it revealed to me as I had a fascinating evening of alteration, that the world should not be divided by race, creed, gender, etc., etc.. No, rather, instead, the world is indeed divided by two kinds of people: Those who say "mum" and those who say "mom."

Which shall ye be? On whose side will you stand at the Last Great Day?

RE: If "Mom" = "Mum"...
Okay, so I think what I really meant to ask was/is:
Where does the English language get divided on the usage of mom/mum? I'd say the US weighs in heavy with "mom" and the Brits I've known (okay, so really just James Bond) all say "mum?" What do you call that lady that slipped you out her love canal? (Or, in the interest of fair and balancedness, were you cut out of her belly like intestines bursting out of a Tauntaun, much as I was?

I think I've made it pretty obvious where I stand on that issue. And on the last great day I won't be standing on your side, that's for sure. You can now breathe a great sigh of relief. [Image: smiley-smile.gif]

To answer the question, yes "Mummy" is the correct term in the civilised world Smile

Here's an example of its use:



Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
