Accept vs Except | Ask Linda! | English Grammar
These two words are often confused by native and non-native English speakers alike. The key thing to remember is that â€œacceptâ€ is a verb and a synonym of â€œto receiveâ€ as in the example â€œI accepted all my birthday gifts with gratitudeâ€. â€œExceptâ€ on the other hand is a conjunction and a synonym of â€œapart fromâ€. For example â€œWhen Susan travels she packs everything except the kitchen sinkâ€. Remember, â€œacceptâ€ is a verb meaning â€œto receiveâ€ and â€œexceptâ€ is a conjunction meaning â€œapart fromâ€.
