I'd certainly be interested in seeing compiled data from Gabriella Modan's
class project.  I became aware of the different definitions of "Ms." in a
graduate sociolinguistics class last semester when students could not agree
on who "Ms." was meant for.  But I did not suspect that there could be 21
different definitions.
