One of the most important persons in the world is your mum. For many children «mama» is the first real word that they say, but what is the difference between mother, mum, and mummy.
Mother is very formal. Although some students tend to use mother when they speak to me, and it’s not wrong to do so, it’s more natural to use the word mum when speaking, except in a strictly formal context. In fact, I almost never use mother when speaking about my mum.
Mum is used most often, and especially when you are speaking to others about your family. In American English, this word is mom. Some Irish people say «mam».
Mummy is an affectionate form. As a boy, I used this word a lot, I called my mummy whenever I was stuck and she was always there to help. As an adult, I don’t use this form as often, and I don’t use it when talking to others. Adults who use this form to speak to others about their mum can seem childish.
I hope this helps you use this very important word more naturally.
