effect or affect.
I have a sentence here:
"The Department had in effect also changed the recommendation..."
Using effect, is that correct?
Re: effect or affect.
Yes. 'To affect' is to act on or influence. 'To effect' is to accomplish something. So 'in effect' means 'as a result of accomplishing something'.
