Do you know the difference between affect and effect?
Asked at Dillons, 1740 Massachusetts St. on January 23, 2013
“ Yeah, affect is the verb, and effect is the noun. We learned that in, like, second grade.”
“ Cause and effect with an ‘e.’ ‘A’ is what you do to change something.”
“ I believe I do. But I don’t know if I can explain the difference.”
“ Yeah, affect with an ‘a’ means to be affective. I usually know the difference on essays.”
