“Miss”, when we use this term before the name, shows the title and respect for female child and unmarried women.


Excuse me, Miss. Is this your pen?

Miss. Can you drop me there?

Hello! Miss Aaliyah, you are invited to the party


“Mrs”, has been a title of respect of a married and widowed woman. In many cases, it comes with their partner’s first name and last name. But most of the cases nowadays females are considered as to respect with their names.


Excuse me, Mrs. Puja will you please sit down?

Mrs. Santi Devi, what is your qualification?

Hello! Mrs. Sunita, you are invited to the party.


What if you have no idea whether or not someone is married? “Ms.” does not convey a woman’s marital status, unlike “Miss” or “Mrs.,” therefore it became a good option when you didn’t have that context.


Nice to meet you Ms. Alex

Hello! Ms. John, Are you married?


Merriam-Webster Unabridged added “Mx.” in 2016 (though it first appeared in print in the late 1970s). The prefix serves as a gender-neutral replacement for titles such as “Mr.” and “Ms.” It also doesn’t denote marital status, unlike “Ms.”
