Affected vs Effected - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This is another set of words that is easily confused in English. Let?s take a closer look: "Affected" means "impacted, created an effect on, changed in a certain way." For example: The BP oil spill adversely affected marine wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding areas. "Effected", on the other hand, means "executed, brought about, produced something." For example: After the BP oil spill, the government effected sweeping environmental regulation. I hope the difference is clear now. That?s it for today. See you next time!
