I, too, would be very interested in reading the data.  Would you post them
for interested parties to see or send us your e-mail address so we can
request copies?  Thanks.

I just had my students to a project on Ms, Mrs., and Miss, where they each
asked 4 people what they thought the terms meant.  It was just a class
project, but if anyone's interested in the difference in meaning (not what
the original request was for, I realize), I can send the compiled data,
which is pretty interesting -- 21 different definitions for 'Ms.!
