This one is for you, Deanna.
In March I wrote up a post about Affect vs. Effect. In order to clarify, I wanted to try again, this time with visuals.
Ice cream is yummy.
It has this crazy affect (affect = influence) on me. It makes me want to eat it.
But if I eat too much, the effect (effect = result) is... I get chunky.
Mmmm chunky ice cream.
Does that help?
