The meaning of momoasa

    Maybe it's "mămoasă" - adj. fem. (mămos - masc.) about a child overtly very attached to her/his mother or a parent overtly very attached to their children. Now with the right spelling you can look it up yourself in any dictionary.

    Or maybe it's "child speak" for frumoasă - a grown-up talking to a child imitating their (perceived at times) mispronunciation or used deliberately in a conversation with other adults as an irony. Not knowing the context it's hard to tell. This is why the forum rules call for the full context to be presented...

    Momoasă it's not (yet?) in the dictionaries but it's used quite a bit, tongue in cheek it seems. A quick search on the 'Net will return interesting results...

    Later,
