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!!!!!
