How do you say 'mom' in Norwegian?

What is the vocative way to say 'mom' in Norwegian (as opposed to the more formal 'mother')? Is there a formal and informal way to address parents? Is there even a vocative case in Norwegian? Thanks!

    No vocative case in Norwegian. Nouns have but one case. (Although you can make them genitive by adding -s)

    mor is the formal word for mother

    here are the forms:

    en (or ei) mor

    moren or mora (the mother)

    mødre -- mothers

    mødrene -= the mothers

    mamma can also be used (as a less formal word, perhaps like mom or mommy.)
