1. So self centered

Only Iím effected donít bother me.

Oh poor me I gave it to my husband. Pray for us.

How about prayers for the completely innocent people you might have affected? Never even crossed her mind.

Btw, I think I used effect and affect correctly, but would appreciate being corrected.

2. First sentence should be "affected". I think.



EDIT: I always get these two words screwed up myself.

Affect is a verb

Effect is a noun.

To affect something results in a certain effect.

Therefore, I think "affected" should be used in both of your statements.

However, take what I say with a grain of salt...I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

4. Thanks

Itís easier being an engineer. Weíre not expected to speak good English anyway.

I googled and still donít know.

Affected can be used as a past tense verb that means influenced or changed. It can also be used as an adjective to refer to a noun that has been affected (the affected body part). Effected is a past tense verb that means brought about or achieved. It's a very subtle difference from affected.


At least itís not as basic as its and itís so it seems I deserve some slack, just a bit.

7. Actually they can both be a noun or a verb.

Most commonly, though, you are correct in that affect is usually a verb and effect is usually a noun.

Effect as a verb would be something effecting of something else.
Affect as a noun is used commonly in psychology kind of like manifestations.

30 years as an English teacher! You caught me on my lunch between classes.

8. Is she continuing to attend church while she knows she's infected?

She says very clearly that "...I'm NOT missing out on worshiping."

Churches are pestholes, full of people just like her.
