ACCEPT VS EXCEPT
English Audio, Everyday Language

ACCEPT VS EXCEPT 


Accept

Accept is a word that means to take or receive something that is offered. We can accept things that we can touch (tangible) or things we can’t touch (intangible).

For example:

You can accept a gift (which is tangible) or a new job (which is intangible).

When Ali asked Sally to marry him, she happily accepted.

Except

Except means excluding or with the exception of. It is used to show something is not included with the rest of the things.

For example:

I like most colours, except pink.

The dog likes all vegetables, except lettuce.

All the classmates except Marwan attended the gathering.

HINT! If you are a good speller, here is an easy trick to distinguish the word accept from except. Remember that the first two letters of except give a clue to its meaning. Except means to exclude.
