Effect vs. Affect

Thanks for the quiz I got 10 right out of 11
This was new to me:
Use effect to mean bring about or cause.
thanks again

You remind me of the spelling reform initiated by people like Webster, Bernard Shaw, and others. They tried and tried to change the spelling of English claiming that there is no one to one correspondence between sound and spelling in English. But they were not successful, well may be Webster was a little bit successful in changing some spellings that lead to the change between American and British English.
I think it is not only "grammar Nazis" would object to the change but ordinary people as well. You can not change something people are so well accustomed to.
