Is there a difference between "ma" and "máma"? I've only heard máma.. is it a dialect thing?

Yes, exactly. For an added effect, try making the 'á' sound farther back. You're now speaking like a Hungarian hillbilly, which is cool.

Sometimes you can hear "Mánma" too. It depends from the dialects.

So now whenever I hear young kids say "Mama", I think, "Oh, they're saying 'Todaytoday!'"
