    Default address

    Should address be plural because this is of course not refering to only one person but a lot of people. alot of people don't want to give out their addresses
    but
    if we think about agreement, no one is singular and so address has to be singular too?

    no one wants give out their address to strangers
    no one wants give out their addressess

    Default Re: address

    One address per person
    Ex: No one wants to give out their address to strangers.

    Two or more addresses per person; e.g., work and home
    Ex: No one wants to give out their addresses.


    Does that help?
    __________
    Note, in formal English no one takes a singular referent; i.e., hers, his; his or hers; hers or his. There's also, no one want to give out an address.
