1) Do the women in question call themselves Miss?
2) Might it be a slurring of Ms.?
3) Might the guilty parties be elders, or from a part of the country where
this usage is an informal courtesy?
4) If this is a pressing issue, might it be a question best posed to Miss

Several of my co-workers say "Miss Jane or Miss Linda" even
when the woman
is married. I do not believe that they are using Miss
correctly. I think
that one should always use "Miss" with a last name and only
for a unmarried
woman. I'm I right?

Can anyone refer me to a reference book or a web site?
