Dear Ms Colwell
I'd be interested in what you find about "Ms, Mrs and Miss". My own work is actually about German "Frau/Fraeulein" and French "Madame/Mademoiselle". In both languages however the critical theoretical discourse is orientated towards English as well.

Please forgive the cross listing of this message.
I am looking for research on the use of women's titles in corpora of
American English. I am especially interested in the frequency of title
use in spoken English. I am not terribly concerned (at this point) with
who, when or why particular titles are used. Any suggestions?
