Only a Writer Would Even Care

Here's a question that I've posed before in a different venue. But, to my way of thinking, it's still an open question that my mind has never settled on, one way or the other:

When you spell it, do you prefer mama or momma? Or, does it make any difference? Should it make any difference?

I've seen it spelled both ways, with mama taking a slight lead, possibly. I'll share with you that my fingers have always, and probably will always, automatically type momma. I suppose it's possible that spelling preference is a regional thing, but I have no research to back that up.

That's my question of the day. Feedback anyone?

  1. Well I most always use mama or mother or mom. Don't think I have ever used momma.

  2. I'd type 'mama,' grew up saying "mom." To me, "momma" is a Southern thing--my dad's side of the family would use that spelling, I grew up in Illinois.
