分類: 相似字比較

簡單來說, 如果句子裡有 all, every, no, everything, nothing, everyone, no one,

nowhere, whole 等字時, except except for 是通用的

: Everyone was there except (for) John.

但如果沒有上述那些字時, 就要用 except for 而不能用 except

: It was a good plan except for the people involved. (O)

It was a good plan except the people involved. (X)

另外, 在像 do 的特殊句型裡, 後面要接原形動詞時, 只能用 except 而不能用 except for

: She does nothing except complain all day.
