    in or on a street?


    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.
