The following questions came up in a classroom discussion on prepositions.
1. Do you live in canal street?
2. Do you live on canal street?
Should it be in or on in the questions above?
I know the ' on canal street ' is correct, but I found it difficult to explain why ' do you live in canal street' is not quite right.
Can someone help please.
As far as I am concerned both are in common use and are ok. In fact, in the part of England I am from "in" is usual.
