Affect Versus Effect
This is an expanded show based on the original episode covering when to use affect with an a and when to use effect with an e.
This question is from Eric on the voicemail line.
"I have a question for you regarding the "affect or effect" conundrum. Please shed some light on this for me. I've read style guides but I can never remember, so I'm looking for some kind of mnemonic or something that might help."
This is by far the most requested grammar topic, so I have a few mnemonics and a matching cartoon to help you remember.
