IS ABOUT S^ xM/iCd/C SQUARE /NAILES t_A.RGEPt THAN SCXS7?-/ DO AMV BIRDS MI6RATE K4LL, INSTEAD OF Don't Take MY Word By FRANK COLBY KEVEBEND AGAIN From Modesto, Calif.: "Recently you stated that one should never address a clergyman as "Rev Jones," that reverend Is merely an adjective and not a title. We do no' agree with you. Webster's Diction ary gives reverend as a noun, and in the Forms of Address, states tha 'Rev. Jones' is correct. Ministers always use the form 'Rev. Jones. Newspaper writers always use it Please correct the mistake at once in your column."—J. W. B. Answer: Sorry, but my recent release was correct in every detail Reverend is given as a noun by Webster's, but it is stigmatized as "colloquial." In the Forms of Address, Webster's does not authorize "Rev. Jones." The correct form of address for a Protestant minister is shown in Webster's as it was listed by me: "The Rev. Mr. (or Dr.) John Jones." Webster's states specifically: "Most authorities disapprove the use of Rev. with the last name alone." The correct form of address for a priest of the Roman Catholic church is: The Rev. Father John Jones. I am grieved that rost ministers and practically all news writers use the erroneous form "Rev. Jones,' but it still remains the duty of this column to report good usage, anc not to condone misuse regardless of its source. Incidentally, the word reverend is used but once in the Bible, and, correctly, as a simple adjective: '. . . and reverend is his name/ Psalms 111.9. ANSWER: Yes.
