[miz] /mɪz/

plural Mses.
[miz-uh z] /ˈmɪz əz/ (Show IPA)
a title of respect prefixed to a woman’s name or position: unlike Miss or Mrs., it does not depend upon or indicate her marital status.
a title prefixed to a mock surname that is used to represent possession of a particular attribute, identity, etc., especially in an idealized or excessive way:
Ms. Cooperation.
abbreviation (pl) MSS., mss.

(plural Mses.), 1949, considered a blend of Miss and Mrs.

abbreviation of Latin manu scriptum (see manuscript); the plural is MSS, after the custom in Modern Latin.

A title used before a woman’s name, pronounced “Miz” and corresponding to Mr. before a man’s.

Note: Feminists have urged the use of Ms. because, unlike Miss or Mrs., it does not identify a woman by her marital status. (See feminism.)
