Personally, I call my Mother <Mama> /"mAma/ and my Father <Papa> /"pApa/. Little Children usually say <Mami> and <Papi> as well, and <Mutti> and <Vati> (regionally usually <Vatter> here) isn't that uncommon either, though "Mutti" and "Vati" usually make me think of old DEFA children's films from the GDR for some reason: /"mu\di/, /"f8:di/ Carsten NB: Please use plain text next time. -- "Miranayam kepauarà naranoaris."
