Hello!

I have recently found a new meaning of the verb"to address".

I know now that it can have a meaning quite similar than that of the verb "to deal".

I have come acroos it in a context like this:

"Our system(computing)is able to address to many problems"( I think I have seen it with the preposition"to"; I am not completly sure).

So after finding this sentence, I wonder weather we can use the verb" to deal with" instead or not. It occurs to me that maybe the verb" to deal" fits better when the subject is a person.

Thank you very much!!

P.S.***By the way; Is it correct to use the verb" to fit " as I have done?***

Thank you, again.

Hi,

Actually, 'address' can mean 'try to deal with something'. 'Deal with something' usually suggests the dealing was successful.

I have come acroos it in a context like this:

"Our system(computing)is able to address to many problems"( I think I have seen it with the preposition"to"; I am not completly sure). Don't use 'to'.

So after finding this sentence, I wonder weather we can use the verb" to deal with" instead or not. It occurs to me that maybe the verb" to deal" fits better when the subject is a person. Use 'deal with something', not 'deal something'.

Thank you very much!!

P.S.***By the way; Is it correct to use the verb" to fit " as I have done?*** It's OK

CliveActually, 'address' can mean 'try to deal with something'. 'Deal with something' usually suggests the dealing was successful.

Then does "deal with" in this sense mean "manage"?

  • "Be successful; achive a goal
    "I managed to carry the box upstairs"
