such vs. so (niin)

Milloin ‘NIIN’ on ‘SUCH’, milloin ‘SO’?

Hän on NIIN söpö KOIRA.    >     He’s SUCH a cute DOG.

Hän on NIIN söpö.                     >      He’s SO cute.

Jos seuraa substantiivi (henkilö/asia/esine) >> SUCH

He is such a nice boy.

It is such a nice morning.

This is such nice chocolate.

(! Näissä on substantiivi ja siihen sopivaa artikkeli)

Jos ei ole substantiivia >> SO
(sen sijaan on adjektiivi/adverbi: minkälainen/miten joku on)

He is so nice.

The morning is so nice.

The chocolate is so nice.

Affect vs Effect

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


affect = VERBI / vaikuttaa johonkin, liikuttaa
effect = SUBSTANTIIVI / vaikutus, seuraus

TO AFFECT = to have an influence VAIKUTUS on something.
▪ His decisions could affect [=influence] the lives of millions of people.
▪ The accident will affect[=influence] the value of the car.
▪ The criticism affected [=bothered, upset] her deeply/greatly.
▪ The entire town was affected by their deaths. [=everyone in the town felt sad about their deaths]
▪ The disease can affect your muscles.
▪ drugs that affect the nervous/immune system
▪ Rain affected [=influenced] their performance.
(> Merriam Webster’s Learner’s Dictionary)

AN EFFECT = a result, a consequence
▪ The defeat had a terrible effect [=impact] on the team’s spirits.
▪ He now needs more of the drug to achieve/get/produce the same effect.
▪ The effects of the drug soon wore off.
(> Merriam Webster’s Learner’s Dictionary)

to have an effect on

Tässä effect on substantiivi, mutta merkitys on sama kun verbi affect:
▪ His decisions could have an effect on [=influence] the lives of millions of people.
▪ The accident will have an effect on [=influence] the value of the car.


affect = SUBSTANTIIVI / tunne, effekti (psykologia)
effect = VERBI / saada aikaan

Tämä on HARVINAINEN, mutta kuitenkin mahdollinen. Sen takia säännöissä lukee, että affect on YLEENSÄ (primarily ENSISIJAISESTI, mostly) verbi ja effect YLEENSÄ substantiivi.

AFFECT =  to act on or change someone or something, vaikuttaa johonkin olemassa olevaan
EFFECT = to cause something to happen, ‘synnyttää’

▪ Rain affected [=influenced] their performance.
▪The new president effected [=made, caused] many changes..

Well, some of these mistakes aren’t common YLEINEN at all, just funny =)

This week, Krista bumped into a problem at school. Some students did not know what  ‘XXI’ stood for TARKOITTAA. They asked their teacher what that ‘risti-risti-tikku’ meant. This post is to ensure VARMISTAA that you haven’t forgotten either! 😉
