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.
--Milton.

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]


Except \Ex*cept"\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Excepted}; p. pr. & vb.
n. {Excepting}.] [L. exceptus, p. p. of excipere to take or
draw out, to except; ex out capere to take: cf. F.
excepter. See {Capable}.]
1. To take or leave out (anything) from a number or a whole
as not belonging to it; to exclude; to omit.
[1913 Webster]

Who never touched
The excepted tree. --Milton.
[1913 Webster]

Wherein (if we only except the unfitness of the
judge) all other things concurred. --Bp.
Stillingfleet.
[1913 Webster]

2. To object to; to protest against. [Obs.] --Shak.
[1913 Webster]


Except \Ex*cept"\, v. i.
To take exception; to object; -- usually followed by to,
sometimes by against; as, to except to a witness or his
testimony.
[1913 Webster]

Except thou wilt except against my love. --Shak.
[1913 Webster]


Except \Ex*cept"\ ([e^]k*s[e^]pt"), conj.
Unless; if it be not so that.
[1913 Webster]

And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless
me. --Gen. xxxii.
26.
[1913 Webster]

But yesterday you never opened lip,
Except, indeed, to drink. --Tennyson.
[1913 Webster]

Note: As a conjunction unless has mostly taken the place of
except.
[1913 Webster]

except
v 1: take exception to; "he demurred at my suggestion to work on
Saturday" [synonym: {demur}, {except}]
2: prevent from being included or considered or accepted; "The
bad results were excluded from the report"; "Leave off the
top piece" [synonym: {exclude}, {except}, {leave out}, {leave
off}, {omit}, {take out}] [ant: {include}]
