Usage notes[edit]

  • In China the pronunciation "jiàomǔ" is generally taught as the only correct reading in Mandarin, however "xiàomǔ" may be heard from time to time, likely by analogy with (xiào). Pronouncing as xiàomǔ in formal situations would be regarded as an indication of the low educational level of the speaker.
