Manuscript Title

Don't Call Me "Madam"

Publication Date

4-1-1974

Abstract

The word madame is known throughout the world, and everywhere it is pronounced acceptably-except among English-speaking people. It would be said to translate literally as "my lady," but so-called literal translations are usually only mistranslations. Anyhow, the word has no real equivalent in modern English.
