Declension of Mutti [feminine]
Declension of Mutti [sg-only, feminine]
- The word is commonly used with a definite article in most parts of central Germany, southern Germany, and Austria: Wo ist die Mutti? – “Where is Mum?” In northern Germany—and generally in writing—no article tends to be used: Wo ist Mutti?
- The genitive Muttis is used before the modified term, without any article or determiner: Muttis Tasche – “Mum’s bag”. This is chiefly northern German usage; the rest of the language prefers: die Tasche von der Mutti (as above). — With an accompanying article or determiner, the genitive takes no ending: die Tasche meiner Mutti – “my mum’s bag”. This, however, is not common usage in any region; children will say instead: die Tasche von meiner Mutti.
