MLA stands for the Modern Language Association.  MLA style refers to how one should format a paper when writing it.  The MLA style book gives information on how to write an outline, when to use certain punctuation, how to format your headings, and how much to indent a paragraph.

MLA style most often refers to your citation style, i.e. how to format your in-text citations and your works cited.

MLA style is most often used by English and writing majors.
