Lookup English Definition:

except    : [ɪks'ɛpt]
Except \Ex*cept"\, prep. [Originally past participle, or verb in
the imperative mode.]
With exclusion of; leaving or left out; excepting.
[1913 Webster]

God and his Son except,
Created thing naught valued he nor . . . shunned.

Syn: {Except}, {Excepting}, {But}, {Save}, {Besides}.

Usage: Excepting, except, but, and save are exclusive. Except
marks exclusion more pointedly. "I have finished all
the letters except one," is more marked than "I have
finished all the letters but one." Excepting is the
same as except, but less used. Save is chiefly found
in poetry. Besides (lit., by the side of) is in the
nature of addition. "There is no one here except or
but him," means, take him away and there is nobody
present. "There is nobody here besides him," means, he
is present and by the side of, or in addition to, him
is nobody. "Few ladies, except her Majesty, could have
made themselves heard." In this example, besides
should be used, not except.
[1913 Webster]

excepter. See {Capable}.]
