    I'm nearly there.

    Okay so affect is a verb that describes something changing. Similar to impact? Like "Sleep deprivation is affecting my ability to understand written English".

    And effect can be a verb or a noun, but it refers to a result, not the process? So like "The effect of sleep deprivation is I can no longer understand written English"

    But then "sleep deprivation has affected my ability to understand written English" or is it effected?

    Hmmm.... I'm thinking it's effect as well if the word before it is "an" or "the".

    "I have an effect"
    "the effect I have"
    "the effect of climate change.. "
    " climate change has an effect"

    With the exception of "has effected change" or "effecting change" meaning "bring about"?

    How am I going with this?

    I just told df I finally understand effect and affect. He can't believe I didn't know and demonstrated his knowledge of it. Damnit.

    You can also have an affect.
    An affect you can also have

    99% of the time affect is a verb and effect a noun.


    I'm sick of seeing roofs instead of rooves on the news!
