    New york one

    If our office has two addresses and I am talking to someone over the phone regarding this, first address is of New York and second is of Virginia and that person asks me which address to use. Would it be correct to say "New york one"?. If I want him to use New york address.

    Re: New york one

    Tufguy, please edit your post to use correct capitalisation on the name of the city. After that, we will answer your question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: New york one

    Additionally, as you have been told before, your sentence beginning with 'If' must not end with a full stop.

    Re: New york one

    I think the OP doesn't know that the if-clause and the main clause cannot be two separate sentences, but I am not a teacher.

    The OP has been told that many, many times.

    You have also been told countless times that you must end every sentence with a punctuation mark and yet I find myself again correcting it. Please concentrate.

    No, you haven't. 'New York' is still uncapitalised more than once.

    I blame myself for approving this thread from moderation. If I could live my life again, I would delete it.

    Re: New york one

    In fact, I think you've made it worse! I didn't spot that because I simply believed you when you said "I have done that". You now have "New york" three times. It is wrong each time. Try again.
