Mis-mangled Alphabetized Mangling

Recommended Posts

"Dr." alphabetizes as "Doctor"

"Sgt." alphabetizes as "Sergeant"

"Mr." alphabetizes as "Mister"

"Mrs." alphabetizes as "Mistress"

 

But....

 

"Ms." does not alphabetize as "Miss"?

Ms is not an abbreviation for Miss.

Miss is an abbreviation for Mistress.

Ms is just Ms and was create in the 1950's to indicate either a married or unmarried woman.

Granted Mrs should probably sort as Missus.
