This question is derived from this post, where someone says
By "the person addressed" I meant the person to whom the question is addressed, the person who must answer the question.
One of the meanings on the Oxford dict is
Speak to (a person or an assembly)
the corresponding example sentence is
‘The person obviously wasn't addressing him, but speaking to someone else.’
Does "address" in "address a question to someone" have the same meaning of "Speak to (a person or an assembly)"?
Is this a common expression, “the person addressed”?
