Except/Accept

Your writing, at its best.

Be the best writer in your office

Except/Accept

Accept means “to receive.”

Except is usually a preposition meaning “but” or “leaving out.” However, except can also be a verb meaning “to leave out.”

As verbs, accept and except are nearly antonyms, so the difference is important!

Examples: He accepted the gift. (He received it.)
He excepted the twins. (He did not include them.)

Everyone except Bill. (All but Bill.)
