affect versus effect

•The majority of the time you use


affect with an a as a verb
and
effect with an e as a noun
affect versus effect

•Affect with an a means "to influence,"


examples: "The arrows affected the aardvark,"
" The rain affected Amy's hairdo."
• Affect can also mean, roughly, "to act in a way
that you don't feel,"
examples: "She affected an air of superiority."
“Her affect was disturbing to me: she
was always trying to be something she
was not”
affect versus effect

Effect with an e has a lot of subtle meanings as a


noun, but basically its meaning is "a result"
Examples:
"The effect was eye-popping."
"The sound effects Ty made were amazing."
"The rain had no effect on Lelani's hairdo"
"The trick-or-treaters hid behind the bushes for
effect.“
“The effect of plants on biodiversity is…”
affect versus effect

• Grammar Girl says, use aardvark to remember:


“The arrows affected the aardvark.”
“The effect was eye-popping."

• Affect with an a goes with the a words arrow and


aardvark
• Effect with an e goes with the e word eye-popping

HINT – A Good Rule of Thumb:

Effect is mostly commonly used as a noun


meaning the result or impact of something, an
outcome. If there's "a/an/the" in front of it, it's
an effect.
