Accept vs. Except: Miah's project

Listen to this episode

  • ACCEPT is a verb; it means “to receive”.
  • EXCEPT as a verb means “to leave out”;
    Some things can be misinterpreted by the sound because they sound alike
<Accept and Except>
   -see they sound just alike.
–People say the word all the time, but written on paper, it’s confusing
  • Some people only think EXCEPT is the only word for everything, and ACCEPT never comes to mind
       because most people don not write ACCEPT
    ~ So when the word comes up, EXCEPT is written no matter if it is “to receive” or “to leave out”
ACCEPT….receive
EXCEPT…..leave out
                  ~It will eventually come to mind
DONT WORRY– IT JUST TAKES SOME PRACTICE!!!!!

  1. Hi Miah,
    I just wanted to thank you again for being the first “guinea pig” and recording before anyone else. I had so much fun with this podcast and I think your mnemonic to help remember when to use accept vs except will really help a lot of people. Good work!

  3. Yours was very useful and creative. Many people mess up on this and it is good to remember that ” a is to recieve and e is to leave out” Very good!
