(ms-). [In words of Teutonic origin, fr. AS. mis-; akin to D. mis-, G. miss-, OHG. missa-, missi-, Icel. & Dan. mis-, Sw. miss-, Goth. missa-; orig., a p. p. from the root of G. meiden to shun, OHG. mdan, AS. man (100. Cf. Miss to fail of). In words from the French, fr. OF. mes-, F. m-, mes-, fr. L. minus less (see Minus).
