There are a few words that give me fits. I thought you might have similar problems. How does the misuse of effect affect your writing?
Affect vs. Effect
Effect is usually a noun.
I was trying to think up a way to remember which is which. I thought up a trick to remember. When I need to choose affect or effect, I just need to determine if it is a noun or verb. If it's a noun I know it's effect if it's a noun, because noun starts with the sound EN.
It would be great if I could remember which is which, but if that hasn't happened yet (I'm 40), I don't think it will.
