Usage notesEdit

  • In dubbing English-language films and series, the words Mum and Dad are often treated like personal names and thus not translated into German. Outside of this context the words are quite rare in German, though some teenagers adopt them as variants of the perhaps more intimate, child-like Mama and Papa.
