Does the audio for DORME sound weird?

Yeah totally, I heard "pornay".

Yeah, I heard 'porme' and typed it in, luckily Duolingo decided to allow it as a typo.

Mom and Mother should be interchangable, correct?

Well, Mama didn't work. I guess mother is more formal, but all three of these are used interchangeably where I live - Tennessee.
