Common Grammar Boo-Boos #1: Affect vs Effect

Post  aqalieh95 on Mon Apr 25, 2011 9:49 pm

Many people confuse affect with effect with each other because they have the same definition but are different parts of speech so they are used differently in a sentence.

Effect is a noun
Affect is a verb - verbs show action

Examples:
The movie had a powerful effect on me.
The test is going affect her college applications.
The effect of Obama's speech was quite profound.
I hope my lesson will affect my students positively.
