Etymology

c.1374, "to make straight," from O.Fr. adresser, from V.L. *addirectiare "make straight," from L. ad "to" + *directiare, from L. directus "straight, direct" (see direct). Meaning "to direct spoken words (too someone)" is from 1490; noun sense of "formal speech" is from 1751. Meaning in Eng. expanded 17c.-18c. to the notion of directing something, as a letter, "straight" to where somebody lives. "To send as a written message" is from 1636, which led to noun senses of "superscription of a letter" (1712) and "place of residence" (1888).
