I bet the English language is one of the most difficult to learn. When it comes to reading literacy, decoding words has to be a number one priority. Words like AFFECT make it difficult to figure out at times. This one always stumps me!
Affect versus Effect – that is the question!
According to Dictionary.com, affect is defined as: to act on; produce an effect or change in something. Effect is defined as: something that is produced by an agency or cause; result; consequence of something.
To simplify it, I say affect=change and effect=results.
That’s it! Memorizing this will effectively affect me!
