How would you explain the relationship (not the meaning) between affect and effect using the following pairs of words:
appropriate (as a verb) expropriate
ad nauseam exit
Does it explain the difference? Why wouldn't adhesive work as an example? Is it just because it does not have a pair such as the above words? Why does it not have such pair, though?
I'm not really sure, but could it be:
(attract, like affect can only be a verb, while extract can, like effect, be both a noun and a verb)
Thank You, Tdol. I think that there is more to it, though. I will let you know if I find that out.
