Possible Duplicates:
What's an easy way to remember when to use “affect” or “effect”?
Effect vs. Affect

I always confuse the two and I have no way of telling them apart! Help!

  • Note the related question: “What’s an easy way to remember when to use affect or effect?” <hr> Mnemonics are hard to provide because they depend so much on your particular background, personal knowledge, and what exactly it is you don't understand. I'll try anyway: something effective produces effects. Affective is related to affection and other feelings.
