I am confused about the words crossroad and crossroads. Can you tell me the difference. Thanks.
crossroad n.Originally Posted by JJ
It has only one meaning: a junction where one street or road crosses another.(same as intersection ... intersections are in bigger cities or towns, not in rural communities)
A place where two or more roads meet.
A small, usually rural community situated at an intersection of two or more roads.
