Adress vs. Address

As nouns, the main difference between adress and address is that address has no definition. It could be misspelled and address is direction or superscription of a letter, or the name, title, and place of residence of the person addressed while addressing is a process of putting a person’s name and address on an item of mail.

As a verb, “address” means to make reference toward someone or to direct one’s words to a specific person. “Street address” is more detailed and simply a written passage describing where someone or something is located geographically.

“Adress” with one ‘d’ is not a recognized English word. It is, however, the correct spelling of the Swedish word meaning ‘street address’.
