    I have a suggestion for an add. Please address the issue of when to use “— and I, me & —“. i.e. ‘She and I are crazy wordnerds’ vs. ‘Me and CoCo are kookoo’.

      Rebecca ~ #7 addresses that ~ “Choose between ‘me’ and ‘I’ by removing the other person from the sentence and using what doesn’t sound silly.”

    What do you mean “affect” is a verb? It is also a lovely noun that means something similar to “emotive intent”.

    So “affect” and “effect” can both be nouns OR verbs; you just have to learn what they all mean.
