1. Affect a verb implying change
2. Effect a noun meaning the result
Why I love these words:
These two words get confused and mixed up a lot. They both sound the same and are used in the same context, but both are spelled differently, have slightly different meanings and are differentiated when it's appropriate to use them. I hope the definitions I provided simplifies the confusion and helps you remember when to use both.
