We have just received news that a violent Octarine Hurricane is rampaging through our empire. 20% of our Cash Factory production has been
effected. The hurricaine is expected to last for 6 weeks and was created by [redacted].
Shouldn’t it be
affected? There is an extra
i in the bolded hurricane.
past tense: effected ; past participle: effected
cause (something) to happen; bring about.
I am thinking they meant to use the word effected as you can see by the definition.
hurricaine is indeed misspelled
Differences in usage can be so minor. I can often see it either way being correct, so I use this reference as a guide:
Both affected and effected are verb forms and their usage can get confusing. Effected means executed, produced, or brought about. To effect is to bring about or cause something to happen. For example, The dictatorial regime quickly effected changes...
“Affected” means “impacted, created an effect on, changed in a certain way.”
