Very Random Question

This has really been bugging me. Why do I spell Momma M-O-M-M-A and lots of other folks spell it M-A-M-A? Anybody have any idea? Which is correct? Is it the pronunciation that makes me spell it that way? My mom always spelled it Momma so I'm sure that's why I do, but I'm just wondering where the differences came from and why...I know this is random, but help me out here. How do you spell that word and why? love, Jackie Sue

I do the Mama, but others do Momma. I do think it's so weird!

jennifer said...

I have always spelled it "mama", but the "momma" makes more sense being it is short for "mommy". Who knows.

Pete said...

I think it's pronounciation/culture--I don't think one's right and the other's wrong. It's just different. Like colo/colour or gray/grey .... same thing but culture mixed up the spelling.

So then it leads us to the question .....

Which culture does YOUR spelling come from?

Another funny thing ... I've always spelled it "mama" and had never seen you spell it differently until this blog. Funny ....

DidiLyn said...

I spell it, and refer to myself as Mama, but like the Momma spelling better. What is that saying? Am I punishing myself by only allowing myself the Mama spelling? How self-aborbed am I today?
Found your note on BooMama's blog and so enjoy your writing and spirit here.
Nice to meet ya; I'm Diane.

Steph said...

Funny you should ask that. I've wondered it myself from time to time. You could say it's just how your family spells it, but my mom hates the word and called her mom "mother", so I never saw her spell it. I spell it mama (though not to my mom) but Hunter spells it momma. go figure. Happy 6 month anniversary. Ellie looks great

O.K. I'm going to stir up the pot some. I've always spelled it "Mamma". Here in Louisiana, it's the only way I've ever seen it spelled. It fits well with "Daddy". Maybe we're backwards in the Deep South, huh? I just know the word is music to my ears when my babies say it -- no matter how it's spelled!!!

I thinj=k I looked this up once and either is spelling was fine.

D said...

I looked it up and it is actually mamma from the latin word meaning mammary gland. I always spelled it momma, or mama.
