    missed or miss

    1.Is it

    I have given her a missed call.
    I have given her a miss call.
    or
    I am waiting for her missed call.
    I am waiting for her miss call.

    which is correct and what is the difference between both.

    2.bachelor is an unmarried man.what about an unmarried women?

    3.Inorder to make a person happy or to get some things done,we keep on praising a person.Praising is done with an intention.is there any expression for that?

    thanks

    Re: missed or miss

    I have told her about the missed call.
    I am waiting for her to call back.

    I have given her a miss call.
    I am waiting for her miss call.

    A woman who is not married is called single;e.g., She's a single woman.

    To give praise for a purpose

    Re: missed or miss

    It is said 'I will give a missed call tomorrow morning' is a confusing grammatical blunder.
    could you please tell me what is the correct sentence?

    If that is blunder,why cant miss call be used?

    thanks

    In India ,quite a number of people say,"I will give you a missed call tomorrow."
    It is acceptable here.
    Google search:give a missed call.

    Re: missed or miss

    A missed call is the deliberate termination of an outgoing telephone call by the caller, before the called party answers it.This is what i got fm wikipedia.

    When we doesnt want the other person to pick up the call it becomes a missed call.
