It is an extraordinary fact that babies are responsible for the word MOM in many languages. In English she’s mom; in Mandarin-Chinese and Spanish, mama, though with slightly different accents . In Iceland translated as mamma, ma in Punjabi, ema in Hebrew and me in Vietnamese. Notice any trends over here? No coincidence!! one of the first sounds babies typically say is the “ma” sound. Almost every language across the globe has taken that”ma” baby talk as the basis for the word for mother.
