I'm so guilty of confusing affect and effect.... I've had it explained to me so many times but it just doesn't sink in for love nor money!

I wrote a paper a few years ago 'The effects of the supernatural upon Macbeth' ....it took me a long time to work that one out. I assume I got it right since I got good marks on my coursework blah5

This site is funny to read, but they make my spelling worse because then I end up writing the wrong spelling when I knew what it was in the first place ha ha.

I always get compliment and complement mixed up. Same sounding word, different spelling/meaning and it does my nut in trying to remember each one, even though I know them I still have to remind myself of their proper and respective usages.

That's pretty bizarre, you'd think this being a sex stories site, people would familiarize themselves with the difference between "Whole" and "Hole".

If it's lingerie, it's 'lacy'....

If it's a fat 1970s NYC lady TV detective with a partner called Cagney, it's 'Lacey'.

Bumping on the "loose vs. lose". People, you do NOT loose your virginity. You lose it; then you can become "loose", if you want.

Also, who's vs. whose.

Who's= contraction of "who is"; informal (this is why Word always underlines these things with squiglies);
Whose=demonstrative of possession.

Just like it's vs. its.


Who's coming to dinner?

It doesn't really matter whose jacket it may be, it's going into lost and found.

Affect vs. effect is one even academicians get wrong. Being in the field of psychology, we have a bit of an edge (but there are often gray lines).

Affect pertains to human emotion and behavior, specifically. A psychotropic drug like Ritalin or Zoloft can affect people differently, while a drug like Coumadin can effect the way your blood clots.

There is cause and effect.

The state of the economy effects the job market.

A sad movie, however, really affects my mood.

Looks like you clearly get it Little Bambi (although supernatural influences can, arguably, not only effect Macbeth, but also affect him), so I offer this advice for anyone who is confused, and hope it may help.

Affect and effect have definitely always been my downfall. When I'm writing I try to think about it before I write it and always wind up having to look it up

You'd also think they'd at least learn how the spell the parts of a human body. While they were in grammar class, their school money was being wasted.

But what really frosts me is improper use of pronouns.
"it is I" not, "it is me". "Here he/she comes" is correct, and most people understand that. But in answer to the question who is coming?" the answer is "it is he/she" not "him/her" Him/Her is objective: "to whom does it belong?" It belongs to him/her; it is his/hers; he/she (as the subject) owns it." (also, please note, no apostrophe in "hers", even though if you used a proper noun, as in "it is Sally's", you would use an apostrophe.
