I would like to start a sentence with In address to.

Example 1

In address to this problem, several examples have been presented.

Example 2

In address to the trade-off between work and rest, as we work more we have a more stressful life.

  • Is this sentence grammatically correct?
  • Is it idiomatic to start a sentence with such a phrase?
  • Is there a better form of expressing the same meaning?


Here, I mean the examples are provided to imply problems. I do not mean that the examples are provided because of the problem.

I feel "with regard to" does not give the same sense. However, I am not sure about it.

  • @michael.hor257k, Thanks very much. Would you please respond to the other questions as well? – Stephen May 24 '17 at 1:05
  • @Stephen Could you use "In address to” in a sentence, so we can get a better understanding what to imply? – 3kstc May 24 '17 at 1:20
  • I think I'd expect to see: "To address this problem, [sentence]." Or something more realistic to the idea of solving a problem: "To begin addressing this problem, [sentence]." – lirmont May 24 '17 at 1:27
  • No, in address to is not idiomatic. (US English) – Canis Lupus May 24 '17 at 1:40
