sua mamma can be HIS or HER mom/mother mamma. "Sua" is possessive for BOTH his AND hers!
'Her' is still marked incorrect. Reported March 8 2019
Her is still incorrect on oct 6 2019
why should I not confuse 'mom' and 'mother'?
I think it wants mamma to be translated as mum/mom and madre to be translated as mother. But I agree it should definitely accept both.
I agree. Lost a heart
Mom is "mamma" and mother is "madre"
Mom is American,not British. Mother should really be accepted. Reported 28/7/2014
Ridiculous for not accepting mother
Reported 4/6/18 "Mum" and "Auntie" were not accepted, common Uk names
Also reported 30/7/14
Aunty was not accepted.
English English children go to their Mum. "Mom"is to them unknown, as Chaucer might have said..........
But Mom is used in the English Midlands. Beware of sweeping generalisations.
Perhaps. "Mum" in Cumbria and Nottinghamshire. "Mam" also. "Mummy", "Mum', and "Mam" carry some typically English class signals. "Mom" is rare up here.
In agreement with comments below and not with straight jacket translation!
Mother not accepted 16/07/2014
Italian version of this question does not accept madre english version does not accept mother. You cannot win.
."Mother" not accepted 9/04/14. Reported.
Still "mother" is not accepted :(
after this practice, I get so confused that I no longer know how to call my own mother (or mom, or mommy, or......)
I can identify with this confusion and frustration. I tend to think along with DavidMcLeod's comment and assessment above, but I also cross my fingers! ♡ :-)
Mother is accepted 12/10/2014
Wouldn't it be "l'altra e LA sua zia"?
No, because the article is not required for singular official family relationships. HOWEVER, "mamma" is not one of these, so it should read "...LA sua mamma". Reported.
I think Duo is teaching us Italian, not English. And mamma is the equivalent of Mum, Mom, Mummy. Madre is Mother. Do the hearts actually matter?
Any variation of mother (mom, mama, momma, mamma, ma, mum) should be excepted.
Whats wrong with mummy? Another example of not using English English!
"I am her mom, the other is her aunt." Not accepted. Why?
Her is still marked incorrect as of October 22,2019
