How you call your parents in your language?

In Arabic, we add to mother, and father possessive suffixes. While in English, and Turkish possessive isn't used.

Do you use possessive with mother, and father in your language? And how you call them?

I call them Ammi, and Bati

Thanks for your contribution.

Interesting you call your mother same as me, but mine means "My mother". The first part of the question was about using possessive with parents name.

Also in Arabic, we have many synonym for parents name. Some of them you can only use with your friends while mention them. Otherwise it would be rude.

It seems that in Spanish you use P more than b. In Arabic, we don't have P sound. Actually, I still have problems with it. I hope one day I will be able to pronounce it correctly in all words.

While I was learning Turkish I thought that Turkish call their mother "Anneciğim" "My mother" like Arabic. Actually, That's why I had this question. However, I found that children in street call their mother "Anne" "Mother". In the Turkish course, they didn't mention that "Anne" is written "Anneciğim", but I remember "abi", big brother, have different way in writing.

Similar to many languages.

Wow, it's to long. I don't know Russian nor I don't know how to read Russian. I guess you add a respect word to the original word.  

I think "tata" is used in baby talk for grandmother in one of Arabic dialects.

Even her there are many way to call them like ماما بابا. I wrote the one that I use.

Haha, I use them only with my friends. Some use الشيب instead of حاج.
