The short informal form of mom in English is "ma" and for dad (pop) "pa". I've also heard those expressions in Spanish when I lived in Mexico. Would that rendition be spelled with (má) or without the accent (ma)? Source: Do you like it, ma? Target: ¿Te gusta, ma? Or ¿Te gusta, má? If it's monosyllabic and not a homophone, I assume that the accent is not necessary. Can anyone confirm or deny this, please? Thanks.
