Dear all,
How [strike]to[/strike] do we pronounce "Ms." and what is the difference between "Ms" and "Mrs"?

Welcome to the forum.

"Ms" is pronounced either "Mizz" or "M-uhz". It means that the marital status of the woman is unknown. "Miss" denotes unmarried status. "Mrs" denotes married status. If a woman does not want people to know whether she is single or married, she can call herself "Ms". It would also be the correct term of address if you were writing to a woman and you did not know if she was single or married.
