Mrs, Miss o Ms – Quale devo usare?

Posted on Updated on

La differenza è molto semplice:

  • Mrs – Donna sposata
  • Miss – Donna non sposata
  • Ms – Neutro

Non è però sempre chiaro quale usare. Ecco una semplice regola da seguire:

Se sai che quella persona vuole essere chiamata “Mrs” o “Miss” (ad esempio dalla sua firma su un’e-mail), allora usali. Diversamente usa “Ms”, è più sicuro perché stai utilizzando un termine neutro e non rischi di indispettire qualcuno che (chiaramente) non vuole essere soggetto di una distinzione che non esiste per gli uomini.

Per osservazioni o domande lascia pure un commento.

Ciao!

 

 

The difference between these is very simple:

  • Mrs – Married woman
  • Miss – Unmarried woman
  • Ms – Neutral

But which one to use is not always clear. Here’s a simple rule to follow:

If you know that a person wants to be called ‘Mrs’ or ‘Miss’ (from an email signature for example), then use them. Otherwise use ‘Ms’, in this way you are safe because you are using the neutral term and you are not risking upsetting someone who doesn’t want (unsurprisingly) to be distinguished in a way that men aren’t.

Any thoughts or questions feel free to post a comment.
