How do you teach affect and effect?
Hereof, how do you remember affect and effect?
The difference between affect and effect is so slippery that people have started using "impact" as a verb instead. Don't be one of them! Another trick is to remember that affect comes first alphabetically, and an action (to affect) has to occur before you can have a result (an effect).
Subsequently, question is, are you affected or effected by something? Effected means executed, produced, or brought about. To effect is to bring about or cause something to happen. For example, The dictatorial regime quickly effected changes to the constitution that restricted the freedom of the people. On the other hand, affected means made an impact on.
Similarly one may ask, what is the difference between affect and effect with examples?
Affect is usually a verb. Simply put, affect means to impact on or influence. For example, “The snow affected the traffic.” Effect is usually a noun.
Did the cold affect or effect you?
The verb affect means “to act on; produce an effect or change in” as in, “the cold weather affected the crops,” (it produced a change in the crops … probably killing them).
