Definitions for "MISS"
The title with which we brand unmarried women to indicate that they are in the market. Miss, Missis (Mrs.) and Mister (Mr.) are the three most distinctly disagreeable words in the language, in sound and sense. Two are corruptions of Mistress, the other of Master. In the general abolition of social titles in this our country they miraculously escaped to plague us. If we must have them let us be consistent and give one to the unmarried man. I venture to suggest Mush, abbreviated to Mh.
A title of courtesy prefixed to the name of a girl or a woman who has not been married. See Mistress, 5.
A young unmarried woman or a girl; as, she is a miss of sixteen.
