Origin of address
- Middle English adressen to direct from Old French adresser from Vulgar Latin addīrēctiāre Latin ad- ad- Vulgar Latin dīrēctiāre to straighten (from Latin dīrēctus) (past participle of dīrigere to direct direct)
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- From Middle English adressen (“to raise erect, adorn”), from Old French adrecier (“to straighten, address”) (modern French adresser), from a- (Latin ad (“to”)) + drecier (modern French dresser (“to straighten, arrange”)) < Vulgar Latin *directiāre, from Latin directus (“straight or right”), from the verb dīrigĕre, itself from regĕre (“to govern, to rule”).
