Transcript

Do affect with an A and effect with an E give you a hard time? Well, we're here to help with a rule that covers most uses. Chances are, if you want an action word, that is a verb, you want affect with an A. Remembering this rule will affect—with A—your life positively. If you want a noun, you probably want effect with an E. Remembering this rule will have a positive effect—with an E—on you. Check the dictionary entries for exceptions but most of the time, it's affect with an A for action words and effect with an E for nouns.
