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/
NB: Please use plain text next time.
