1. Running behind on my email, as you can tell. But wanted to tell you this was a good one for me. I always have to look in the dictionary to see which is the verb (although I always seem to remember things have an effect). Hoping the action/affect will take a toe-hold in the craggy brain of mine. Thanks!

  2. Yes, but just to complicate matters, ‘affect’ can also be a noun. In psychology, ‘affect” refers to emotion. So it might be used like this: She has flattened affect. ; Her affective response affects me effectively by making me feel, in effect, guilty.
