Though, parents do mind when you say merely a word.
It is like your parents, mostly mothers are compulsive and control freaks.
Everything you do alarms them in an oddly annoying way.
No wonder I fight with my mother everyday.

Daughters n mums are often buddies and they may argue n become friends again.
Most men do not want to take sides in such cases or they may get killed later.LOL

Daughters and mums are females, Sir.
Hence, they are most unlikely to be friends. 
The thing is, with every word the daughter speaks, the much her mother considers that her reign is set to wind up. Wacko

The fight I sometimes have with my 10-year old. Yeeesh! Wacko And I hate when she talks back because as a parent I feel like she isn't giving me enough respect. But that's how almost every parent feel. I remember when I was in my early teens. My mum always complained how I talked back and not giving her respect. My biggest issue was my big mouth (still is an issue LOL). The big difference might also have been because she grew up in Pakistan wherelse I grew up in Europe. She never questioned her parents or anyone for that matter. But I questioned everyone and everything. LOL
Now I'm not saying that being born and raised outside India/Pakistan  makes you more rude or something but the culture is different. In Pakistan, when my mum was a young girl, she was taught to obey her elders and never to question anything. The word 'why' was a big no no. It was a way to instigate fight. Wherelse here in Europe, going to school, I was taught to ask 'why' all the time which irritated my mum to the core. Which further on led to some quarrels between us.
Sorry for going off-topic but going back to the question. No it's not right to talk back not to your parents or anyone else. Not even kids. But we do that all the time, even knowing it's wrong, because we are humans and when we feel our authority is questioned or we are being wrongly accused it's naturally to react like that.
Hopefully you all understood what I've been trying to say in my post. I can be quiet unclear when it comes to explaining and forwarding my opinions. Sorry!
Also everything above mentioned is my personal opinion.

Is it right talking back to parents?  - YESSS ! :D
...until you make sense and they're in a mood to listen to us.
The same would happen between my mom and me...I grew really tired of all those arguements, she would say SOO many hurtful things just for doing stuff "my way"and I would yell back at her and even cry. 
Now, I first see if she's in a mood to listen to me, if she is not.. I simply listen to her or make up an excuse Tongue TBH, she's changed a bit too...she also respects me more these days Ermm

Think most parents are very protective of their children and that is why they always try to dictate terms based on their own little experience.  

Talking back is a big no no for me, and know for sure that  talking back will only aggravate the situation and if i do that with my mom it will only seal any remote chances of an affirmative reply from her

Making a point does not mean you talk back, & My mom and I don't always agree on everything, but I always ask her if she will let me explain myself, many times, she listens, and sometimes without a second thought she says NO, and I truly hate it

But just walk away hurt & crying, and  eventually either she comes around or I get her point. SO far it has worked for us, and anyday prefer peace over arguments

I agree with you. How can parents expect us to listen anything and not say a word? I think parent should be understanding they should know that their child has a right to say something. If I don't say anything to then they'll won't know what I feel. However when you're parents are angry just let them cool a bit then tell them listen I know you are saying this but hear me out. That's what I do. Let them talk first then talk when they are finished.

I think it is depend on the the tone you talk back.If you talk back screaming and shouting Ithink It's wrong but you can explain them smoothly after their anger end.
