ADDRESS, legislation. In Pennsylvania it is a resolution of both, branches of the legislature, two-thirds of each house concurring, requesting the governor to remove a judge from office. The constitution of that state, art. 5, s. 2, directs that "for any reasonable cause, which shall not be, ground for impeachment, the governor may remove any of them [the judges], on the address of two-third's of each branch of the legislature." The mode of removal by address is unknown to the constitution of the, United States, but it is recognized in several of the states. In some of the state constitutions the language is imperative; the governor when thus addressed shall remove; in others it is left to his discretion, he may remove. The relative proportion of each house that must join in the address, varies also in different states. In some a bare majority is sufficient; in others, two- thirds are requisite; and in others three-fourths. 1 Journ. of Law, 154.

Accountability gaps -- where the speaker and addressee misunderstand each other regarding their respective responsibilities associated with the communication

Written in the form of accented verse--where the rhythm is based on a more or less similar number of stressed syllables in every line with an arbitrary number of unstressed syllables in between--each piece depicts various aspects of Spanish customs or everyday reality as perceived by an observer who eagerly shares her impressions with the addressee. Still the reader notices that the exotic Spanish setting serves primarily for attracting the attention of both the addressee and the audience, whereas the entire cycle is devoted to such universal issues of human existence as loneliness and longing for love, anxiety and the need for understanding, or a painful sense of loss and the hope of finding consolation and comfort.
Every letter presupposes some form of previous relationship between the addresser and the addressee. Even if there is no prior relationship, a letter initiating a relationship must take the prior non-relationship as its premise (Romans is an example of this type).
