EdA2Z2016 – AFFECT

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!
