“Affect” VS “Effect”


Do you know the difference between “Affect” and “Effect”?
Do not mix them up. Here are some useful explanations for you:

📎The noun is usually “effect” — unless in more formal or literary contexts in which case “affect” as a noun can mean feeling or emotion.

📎The verb is generally “affect”, although “effect” is possible if the meaning is “put into place” or “carry out”.

📍Here are some example sentences:

“His plans had no effect on me.”

“His disconsolate eyes brought on a sad affect.”

“His plans affected me.”

“He effected a plan to change the world.”

🚨Always remember this sentence:

When you affect a situation, you have an effect on it. 🔑
