Hi there

Adding a contact form to a website and want to have a drop down box for Mr. Mrs. Ms. etc.

Are there any statistics on this?

For example, if I include Mr. Mrs. Ms. Miss. Dr. Prof. do I cover 99.9% of what's out there. I know there's everything from Col. to Lord and Lady, etc. but I'm trying to work out what would be sensible... do I simply need a box for 'other'...?

Paul

I would include the five most common plus "other".

PhilB might be your man for the stats.

I'm inclined to agree although I would say there's a "6 most common".

Mr.
Mrs.
Ms.
Miss.
Dr.
Rev.

Would you agree with that?

Yeah, those are pretty much exactly what I had in mind.

It does seem awfully silly, though, to have three options to ascertain a woman's marital status. But I think you have to offer it at least until society catches up with the Mr or Ms idea.

What I want to know is what would one of your Thai snow'men' refer to themselves as Kay? Laughing

Khun is the honorific title for both male and female (and anything else) in Thailand.

BTW, I'm shocked that you have mentioned such a thing on here after you nearly banned me from your place for what I'd thought was an innocent comment. Laughing

Did they come up with that uniform title because of the, erm, circumstances or has it always been that way?

Just to be picky - there is no title "Prime Minister" as there is technically no such job - at least nothing written into parliamentary law (or Magna Carta). Usually you'd be the First Lord of the Treasury which is a ministerial position although marginally better paid.

This only of course applies to the UK.

OK, Trev... so that might account for the UK, but what about the rest? Very Happy

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
The post of prime minister may be encountered both in constitutional monarchies (such as Belgium, Denmark, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway, Malaysia, Spain,[2] Sweden, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom), and in republics in which the head of state is an elected official (such as Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, Montenegro, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, Turkey) or an unelected official (such as Singapore before 1993) with varying degrees of real power.

But in all but Canada, Australia and New Zealand they wouldn't be called "Prime Minister" although I don't know what that would translate into in French for example. Smile

Now if you really wanna do this properly, the whole form should be in 127 different languages....and ideally another several 1000 dialects.
