  • Why would anyone major in english?

    it seems like such a waste of four years, something you already know, like completely unnecessary. Too broad of a subject. Please don't insult my grammar thank you.

  • I want to name my daughter 'Nevaeh' but i can't work out middle names, something to do with my father "Maxwell" and something else help plz?

    Best answer: I am probably going to get a lot of hate and down votes for this, but here goes... I really like the name Nevaeh. I think it is a pretty name, and it's to honor her grandfather and father, which I think is sweet. I do like the middle name of Maxine. Nevaeh Maxine sounds very good. Please ignore all of these... show more

    Please ignore all of these negative comments. This is your baby and you can name her whatever you wish. And don't forget, you have a wonderful reason for the name!

    I hope this helps, and I hope her dad gets better so he can see her grow up! Good luck! :)

    Best answer: The basic difference between them is that affect is chiefly used as a verb. Its main meaning is ‘to influence or make a difference to’, as in the following example sentences, all of which are taken from the Oxford English Corpus:
    Research suggests that the neighbourhood you live in can affect how well your children perform at school.
    The long periods of separation never affected her love for her mother.
    Continuous rain since mid-June has resulted in widespread flooding, affecting over 119 million people.
    He is in no doubt that thousands of people will be seriously affected if this proposal becomes a reality.

    ffect is used as both a noun and a verb, though the noun use is much more common than the verb. As a noun, effect means ‘a result or an influence’:
    It was clear that the strong windy conditions were going to have an immediate effect on the result of the game.
    The beneficial effects of exercise are well documented.
    Corporations need to think about the long-term effects of their actions.

    As a verb, effect means ‘to bring something about as a result’. It’s often used in quite formal contexts, such as written reports, rather than everyday English:
    The couple had been separated for two years, but her boyfriend tried to effect a reconciliation.
    A Royal Commission appointed in 1906 effected several reforms.

    The key thing to remember is that affect is typically used as a verb:
    A bout of rheumatic fever in his youth had affected his health throughout his life.
    On the other hand, effect is most commonly used as a noun:
    Participants were asked to volunteer for a study looking at the effects of stress on their health.
