I'm working on my first book,an autobiography . I wanted to make sure when do I use capital letters with there words?

‘Mum’ is the short form of ‘Mummy’*. That’s probably a phonetic transcription of the Italian word ‘mamma’ which means ‘mother’. I suppose that it is spelt ‘mum’ in order to be, or because it is pronounced /mʌm/.
*mummy = mother, not the Egyptian mummy :!:
I think what matters is what those words mean to you. But if you use it with the capital once, you have to use it all the time - same with Fatherland or fatherland, if you know what I meanLazycat said:
