Date: Tue, 10 Oct 1995 11:30:05 -0400 From: Wayne Glowka Subject: /mIzrIz/ I just realized this morning that it has been a good ten years since I heard an announcer use the pronunciation /mIzrIz/ for "Mrs." But I no longer listen to the obituary reports on Milledgeville radio and have not attended a homecoming football game where the mothers of the homecoming court are introduced and handed flowers. Is /mIzrIz/ hanging on out there? Wayne Glowka Professor of English Director of Research and Graduate Student Services Georgia College Milledgeville, GA 31061 912-453-4222 wglowka[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
