Kata, what are you smoking this week?

Addresses is the plural of address, as in where a person lives.

It's also what someone does when they start a conversation, as in She addresses him. Present tense.

Address' would never occur unless you named your child Address and were talking about something that belonged to them.

I get where you're coming from but, unfortunately it's the opposite end to your mouth :lol:

I think what you are trying to say is that a person whose name ends in S requires a s' rather than a s's or ses when you describe their belongings.
Once upon a time there were 3 little bears. Now there's thousands of them.

I thought that one of your address's presentation was awful, but now I realise that all of your addresses' presentations were awful and you should address this in all of your future addresses

Given that I'm a byslexic dastard I'm no doubt on very shaky ground here :)

Probably Kristen, don't stress about it... :lol:
When you write the possessive form of any word ending with an "S", all you need is the apostrophe mark.
However, when we talk of many S letters, we do put the small letter S after the apostrophe.
Sorted.
