There’s no getting around it. English grammar is a complicated thing. Is there anyone who gets it right all the time?
Two words appear high on the errors list: affect and effect.
Affect is a verb. It means to have an effect on someone, to touch someone in some way.
Effect is a noun – to cause something to happen or a change or result because of an action.
If we just remember that affect is a verb and effect is a noun, we should have no problem.
Two words that I often mix up are:
ethereal – delicate, light, to perfect for this world
ephemeral – lasting for a short time, such as a plant.
What two words do you have problems with?
