the thirteenth letter of the English alphabet, is an articulation formed by a compression of the lips. It is scarcely ever silent, and its sound is always the same, as in man, gum, rim. As a numeral instants for 1000; with a dash over it for a million. It is of frequent use as an abbreviation, as M.A., manuscript; M.D., doctor of medicine; A.M and P.M before and after noon. In printing, m is taken as the measure of the length of a page; each line being reckoned to hold in breadth so many ens, and hence the amount of type in a page or sheet.
