Accept vs. Except

accept_except

Do I accept an invitation or except it? If someone is left off of an invitation list, has she been excepted or accepted? What’s the difference between these two terms, and how can we keep them straight?

Accept means, most broadly, to take or receive (something offered) or receive with approval or favor, as in “I accept this trophy.”

Except has a verb sense of to exclude; leave out, as in the phrase “present company excepted.” But it can also be used as a preposition, as in “They were all there except me,” and a conjunction, as in “Every inch of the facility was well fortified except here.” Except is also widely used in the phrase except for, meaning were it not for, as in “She would travel more except for lack of money.”

One easy way to keep these two terms straight is to zero in on the ex- in except and associate it with exclude. When determining whether to use except or accept in a sentence, first consider what part of speech the context calls for:

  • If you need a verb, and if that verb could be replaced with exclude without losing the intended meaning of the sentence, then choose except. If the meaning is lost with exclude, then go with accept.
  • If you need a preposition or conjunction (or anything other than a verb), except is the term for you, as accept is only used a verb.

As with some other commonly confused terms, accept and except share a linguistic ancestor. Both can be traced to the Latin verb capere meaning to take. The prefix ex- means out of. The prefix ac- is a variant of ad-, which occurs in loanwords from Latin where it meant toward.

And there you have it! Hopefully you’ll accept our help with these two terms—of course, those who don’t need the assistance are cheerfully excepted.

 

Think you have it figured out? Take the accept vs. except quiz!

    The joke is in poor taste because it is racist. A simple truth is hardly simple minded. Bruce’s attempt to insult the truth often works, but it is simply dishonest to pretend the insult has any substance.

    Hear me, queen
    The strong necessity of time commands
    Our services awhile; but my full heart
    Remains in use with you: Our Italy
    Shines o’er with civil swords: Sextus Pompeius
    Makes his approaches to the port of Rome
    Equality of two domestic powers
    Breed scrupulous faction: the hated, grown to strength,
    Are newly grown to love: the condemn’d Pompey,
    Rich in his fathers honour, creeps apace,
    Into the hearts as have not thrived
    Upon the present state, whose numbers threaten
    And quietness, grown sick of rest, would purge
    By any desperate change: my more particular,
    And that most with you should safe my going,
    Is Fulvia’s death.

      very is used to describe an amount, eg. ‘it is very cold’ whereas vary is used to describe the difference between something, eg, a variety of fruit

      Reply
    • sand -  February 1, 2016 - 2:49 pm

      Vary = to change

      Very = true; genuine; worthy of being called such:
      the very God; a very fool.

      Reply
    • Blah blah blah!!!! -  March 20, 2016 - 12:33 am

      Dude,
      VERY means in a high degree; extremely; exceedingly, for example,
      A giant is very tall.
      VARY on the other hand means to cause to be different from something else for example,
      The band varied last night’s program with one new selection.
      See? They are kinda different. I think of it as for very: (noun) is/was very (adjective), but I think for vary: it can vary (vary means differ). Blah blah blah can vary is the same as blah blah blah can differ. Hope you get it now, …..

      I do not have a clue as to what your comment is trying to say. But oh well. I have normally been taught that the biggest insight into the words effect and affect is as follows:
      Affect – Normally infers “some kind of influence”or to receive whereas
      Effect – Normally infers ” to take or remove”

      In this case I applaud paragraphs three and four insofar as they illustrate the biggest difference using “ex” to exclude or leave out. And “ac” or “af” meaning out of.

    I have a brain injury and learning difficulty. I also have high intelligence that makes my communication often misinterpreted. Kinda like a Dr. House Personality combined with intellect of Einstein. I understand all the High end stuff and can speak well but when in social situations cant understand the separation I have. I fee like I am in a maze testing rats and often test everyone to understand myself, and why they react, and how come I react certain ways. I don’t have emotions when “I’m supposed to” Now just learning a phonetic difference to these words I see how easy I’m taken advantage of and hurt by others. I don’t know how to use their context or understand it either. I never transmit energy of negativity, but I will misuse words some understand , some don’t. I Struggle and wish I didn’t know English anymore. I barely understand several languages but can really understand humans that cant speak English.. I wish I could learn another language and only think in my head with something like Portuguese, and keep it basic. I cant unlearn what I know, I know too much I’m told and never intend to be better than anyone although its always implied by others. I hate you humans and love you too! have a nice day

      Was that brain injury an accident or a bad surgery?? in 2012 I had a surgery in the back of my neck and cause some brain damage too, I feel almost all that you wrote about and feel the same, I agree with you, learning another language will change many negative things in life, I think French and Italian will be the languages I recommend to you, listen to some classic French or Italian music will encourage you to learn the language, Best of luck ..

      Alan,
      Thank you for sharing! Hearing from you about the things that you have experienced has opened my eyes a bit to help me understand my brother better. He also has a brain injury. He was in a wreck when he was 18, and after that he couldn’t, and still can’t speak very well. I mean, he can form words, and pronounce them correctly; but he can’t get them to come out of his mouth fast enough. So, by the time he gets them out of his mouth, the conversation has moved on.
      Like you he is intelligent, and I’m pretty sure he feels that it is wasted, because he can’t interact very well, especially in a crowd. He, too, experiences what you described above, how some people understand, and some do not (most I would venture to say, do not).
      Alan, my wish and prayer for you is that you may become accepted, with very little exception! :-)

    I remember by “accept” being a verb and “except” as a adjective.
    Example: I will accept everyone except Lacey.

    Someone already asked about ‘effect’ and ‘affect’ but it is still difficult for me to remember which is which. Please explain these two words and, if possible, give us an easy way to remember the difference between them. I love mnemonics as a way to keep them straight in my mind..

      I’m not sure I made myself clear in my earlier question. I get confused on the two words, effect and affect. Like the medicine has a bad affect on me or what is the effect of the medicine on me? Affective or effective.

        I always remember that affect means action. It is the doing verb. So if it is happening now it is affect. The result is effect.

          Reading your reply regarding your trick will affect me for a long time to come, the effect of which will be my ability to now communicate more accurately.

            Am I on the correct track of this conversation in saying Affect is the present action and Effect is the present consequence.
            Please correct in lame terms please/

        • Todd -  January 24, 2016 - 4:56 pm

          Thanks Norman, I will try to remember that. I was having the same problem with affect and effect.I’ve had a traumatic brain injury for some years and these two words seem to be the most problematic. I guess I can consider myself lucky if these are the extent of my problems. Give me five minutes and I should be able to come up with a few more words.

      Naturally when we are nervous we either speak quickly and fumble our words or completely lose track of what we meant to say all together. Try taking a pausing as you speak it will give you time to gather your thoughts, remember to breathe and make you seem more deep and thoughtful

      Just imagine everyone watching you is standing there in their underwear. You may start to laugh but you will remember what you were going to say.

    Study…to look over the facts and ideas in order to have them as part of your knowledge
    Learn …the result of study…to have the ideas in your mind….you study in order to learn

    I was given five invitations for parties. I accepted, except for the last one.
    It was in exceptionally poor taste to accept something like that, which caused me to exclude it. Four were from friends, thus the reasoning for my acceptance, but the fifth was the exception.
    I’d fallen out with the person who’d sent it. They’d called me a ‘scally wag’, or words to that effect. It hadn’t affected me at all, but it was the principle. That person was supposedly a principal of a school, so should’ve thought better. However, I’ll supposably ignore their request in the future.

    I have used your dictionary for a long time. When I am reading, and read a word that I am not sure about the meaning, I look it up on my IPhone. I copy the word and meaning and send it to my Wife and two Daughters.

    Suddenly I cannot copy and paste from your website on my phone.

    I really liked the ability to share my learning with my Wife and Kids.

    Can you tell me how I can re-enable this method of sharing?

    Thanks,
