"Mutter" is the translation of the english word "mother", "mutti" is kind of an old-fashioned shortdevelop and also the tantamount of "mum" i d say is, as you told "mama" or "mami" (more frequently offered by smaller sized kids)

Mutter is mother. Mutti and Mama both are supplied for mommy. I have never before sassist anything yet Mama, and also so did everybody approximately me, however in some regions, Mutti is even more widespread.

Well, "Mutter" is a pretty old expression and barely used anymore in spoken language, however you must use it in created language. "Mutti" is also a pretty old expression and also I wouldn't recommfinish utilizing it as it will sound kind of starray to a lot of aboriginal Germans. "Mama" is probably the ideal point to usage in spoken language and also will work-related perfectly fine in nearly eextremely situation. (Except created language)

"Mutti" is additionally a pretty old expression and also I wouldn't recommfinish using it as it will certainly sound type of strange to a lot of native Germans.

Which is amazing. My mom is totally fine through "mutti" yet hails from Berlin from a while ago. And this is what I learned during German classes in the 1990's in the US.


Mama or Mutti if talking to her. Mutter if talking around her to strangers or civilization from occupational I am not that cshed to. Mutti if talking around her with world I feel comfortable through.

I'd say that it is region dependent, in eastern Germany type of human being tfinish to say Mutti and in southern Germany it's Mama, rest of Germany I honestly don't understand.

or use the English word "mom"

God, I hate it. I suppose, I deserve to kinda accept it as soon as teenagers perform that yet I heard 30 year old males call their mothers "mom"...

I'm surprised Mami hasn't come up yet. In my experience many human being usage that or Mama.

And as a rule of thumb I'd suggest that people who usage Mami additionally use Papi and also Mama/Papa.

If talking to your mother you'd pretty a lot always say Mama. When talking about your mom i think it's even more common to describe her as Mutter (or as we would say right here "Muatta")
