Ms.

(mɪz)

pl. Mses. (ˈmɪz əz)
1. a title of respect prefixed to a woman's name: unlike Miss or Mrs., it does not depend upon or indicate her marital status.
2. a title prefixed to a mock surname that is used to represent possession of a particular attribute, identity, etc.: Ms. Cooperation.
usage: Ms. came into use in the 1940s. In the early 1970s the women's movement adopted and encouraged the use of Ms. on the grounds that since a man's marital status is not revealed by Mr., a woman's status should not be revealed by her title. Since then Ms. has gained wide currency, esp. in business and professional spheres.
pron: The pronunciation of Ms. (miz) is identical with one standard South Midland and Southern U.S. pronunciation of Mrs.
