Query:   Dear Colleagues, In my 'Language and Gender' course, I am planning to discuss recent trends in naming practices for women who get married and the use of 'Ms', 'Mrs', and 'miss', and I'd like to compare the situation in English-speaking countries with what happens in other countries to show that different models exist (e.g., in Spanish-speaking countries, in Iceland, in Qu?bec). I'd be very grateful if you could point me to references that describe practices in various communities or tell me what the practice is in communities that you are familiar with, whether things have been changing, etc. I'll gladly share a summary of the responses I receive with anyone who is interested. Sincerely, Julie Auger
