What’s the Genitive Singular of ‘address’?
I’ve been working on a translation project lately and just got stuck a wee bit. Look at the following sentence:
Alternatively, you can put it onto your email address’ ‘whitelist’
(intended meaning: ‘you can put it onto the ‘whitelist’ of your email address’)
Can someone tell me what the correct genitive singular is of the word ‘address’? I mean, in writing, you could just add an apostrophe, like what I’ve done above. However, it doesn’t look right. I’ve been trying to figure it out using Google, but not very helpful. I thought for a moment it might be addresse’s as I think that’s pronouncable (you can hear that it’s a genitive); however, on pasting addresse’s into Google I get stuff like this:
Doesn’t help, does it? Any sensible suggestions or pointers? For now, I’m just going to not use genitive, as I reckon that:
Alternatively, you can put it onto your email address ‘whitelist’
is grammatically correct too.
