  1. addressverb

    To accost is to speak first, to friend or stranger, generally with a view to opening conversation; greet is not so distinctly limited, since one may return another's greeting; greet and hail may imply but a passing word; greeting may be altogether silent; to hail is to greet in a loud-voiced and commonly hearty and joyous way, as appears in the expression "hail fellow, well met." To salute is to greet with special token of respect, as a soldier his commander. To apostrophize is to solemnly address some person or personified attribute apart from the audience to whom one is speaking; as, a preacher may apostrophize virtue, the saints of old, or even the Deity. To appeal is strictly to call for some form of help or support. Address is slightly more formal than accost or greet, though it may often be interchanged with them. One may address another at considerable length or in writing; he accosts orally and briefly.

    Synonyms:
    apostrophize, appeal, approach, cost, court, greet, hail, salute, speak to, woo

    Address is that indefinable something which enables a man to gain his object without seeming exertion or contest, and generally with the favor and approval of those with whom he deals. It is a general power to direct to the matter in hand whatever qualities are most needed for it at the moment. It includes adroitness and discretion to know what to do or say and what to avoid; ingenuity to devise; readiness to speak or act; the dexterity that comes of practise; and tact, which is the power of fine touch as applied to human character and feeling. Courtesy and politeness are indispensable elements of good address. Compare SPEECH.

How to use address in a sentence?

  1. Camden Webb:

    I think there are two factors chiefly in play – one is that a lot of folks in the banking industry don’t understand the firearms industry, but I also think that it was the regulatory environment that identified the industry as riskier than others, but now, as I ’m talking to banker friends about the industry, they are much more willing to learn about the industry and address that knowledge gap and I think that’s a great thing.

  2. Aloo Denish Obiero:

    Technology, imbued with wisdom, adorned by ethics, and draped in compassion, possesses the power to address complex challenges, steer positive societal change, and foster an inclusive, equitable world.

  3. Treasurer Joe Hockey:

    If well designed, the AIIB could play a key role in helping to address the region's acute infrastructure needs. In order to do this we will need a strong and well governed AIIB, it is early days for the AIIB, but China has made strong progress on governance so far. The proposed governance arrangements will be modeled on international best practice.

  4. Antony Blinken:

    And of course, all of the impacts that this is having, including, for example, on food insecurity. We've spent a lot of time, a lot of focus in recent months in trying to address the challenges to food security that were exacerbated dramatically by Russia's aggression. We already had Covid, we already had climate change that were having profound effects on food insecurity. Add to that conflict, we now have well over 200 million people who are severely food insecure, this is something that leaders in countries around the world are feeling because their people are feeling it. And so and I think it increases the pressure on Russia to end the aggression.

  5. The Commission:

    Following an extensive market test, the Commission found that the commitments address the competition concerns identified and concluded that the proposed transaction, as modified by the commitments would raise no competition concerns.
