Affect vs Effect

Affect 和 Effect的用法区别

Hi! I'm Phil from BBC Learning English. Today, I'm going to tell you the difference between affect with an 'a' and effect with an 'e'.

大家好,我是BBC英语学习的菲尔,今天我们来学学affect和effect的区别。

Just remember that affect with an 'a' is a verb. It means 'to influence'. So, for example: Tiredness is affecting my work.

记住,带‘a’的affect是动词,意思是“影响”。举个例子:疲倦影响了我的工作。

Effect with an 'e' is usually a noun, and it means 'the result of something'. The effect of not having breakfast is to feel really hungry.

带‘e’的effect通常是名词形式,意思是“某事的结果”。不吃早餐的后果是真的很饿。

Effect can be a verb. It's very formal and it means 'to implement something'. The management effected a new policy.

effect也可以用作动词。用作动词时比较正式,表示“对某事产生影响”。新政策对管理造成了影响。

So if you find this difference affecting your English, just remember that affect with an 'a' is a verb and that effect with an 'e' is usually a noun. And the effect will be that you don't make any more mistakes!

如果你发现这个区别对你的英语造成了影响,只要记住带‘a’的affect是动词带‘e’的effect通常是名词形式,这样就不会再犯更多的错误了!
