    Re: effect and affect

    affect is used as a verb more often than effect is, but either of them can be used as either verb or noun. People often get the two confused, but they do not mean the same thing.

    Affect as a verb means to influence, while effect means to bring about.

    Hi Simon,

    To affect something is to change or influence it, To effect something is a rather formal way of saying `to make it happen'.
