from another:

1.to act on; produce an effect or change in: Cold weather affected the crops.
2. to impress the mind or move the feelings of: The music affected him deeply.
3. (of pain, disease, etc.) to attack or lay hold of.


English is a f$*#&D up language, I cannot dispute that. Consider the word "order."

1) I will order in the restaurant
2) I'm giving an order to my wife
3) Line up in order

Feel bad for ESL learners.
I was under the impression that what you meant to say was "effect change", which is the collocation I'm familiar with.
