We all have or had a mother. I was so very lucky to have had such a great Mom. But my Mom is not what this blog posting is about. It is about our English language and all the words it has that can mean mother. Let's see, what all did I call my mother. Well, usually I just called her Mom but when I was younger, I called her Mommy. Of course I pronounced them like the words mummy or mum.
There are other words that could be used, also. For example, some mothers are called just "ma" or by a name close to what I used, "mamma", or like the old song "mammy".
The word can also be a verb, like when you say "she will mommy you". That means pamper, care for, look after, etc. Now, if you change the "o" in mommy to a "u", it means something altogether different. Now, how about you telling us what you called your mother and also, make sure you have a great day, you hear?
