OK forgive I am a Brit.


My WIP is set in Tennessee and York, England.


I am fine with the English character but I am trying to work out the appropriate term someone growing up in the 80s in Tennessee would call their parents. At present I have the father called 'Pa' and the mother 'Ma'  I wondered if this is correct or would they would call the mother 'mom'


Any advice gratefully welcomed.
