It's a bug with Duolingo. The makers of the course can't fix it, only the programmers of Duolingo. Send them a bug report here: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
Here's an example of a bug report I've sent: https://imgur.com/gallery/JdHZkXK
"Ma'am" is very American (or restricted to royalty in the UK). Duo should try and provide more neutral English words understood outside the U.S., like "madam". (which also then wouldn't get split into ma and 'am...). This problem also came up with "you all", a phrase not used in many contexts in the UK.
