TOPIC: Structure: Expressing Exception using except for, but, and apart from.



Exception means excluding something or someone from a general statement or a group.

An exception can be expressed in different ways. We can use such words as except, except for, but and apart from to express exception.


Now, consider the following examples:

  1. They all attended the party except Mary
  2. We come to school every day except Saturday and Sunday
  3. I had nothing on except for my socks
  4. All the houses are new except for those two over there.
  5. She had no choice but to sign the contract.
  6. They have answered all apart from the last question.
  7. We are all students apart from Stephen



Use “except, “except for” “but” and “apart from” to form ten sentences that express exception.

However, it is still argued that this may not be the best solution because of its disadvantages.
