    except where

    All paralinguistic messages provide much useful information about the speaker; information which is either consciously or subconsciously received. In most cases people appear to interpret the messages appropriately, except where there is interference because of prejudice.
    ===============================
    I think "except the case where" is the full meaning. "the case" is omitted here.
    "Where" can function as an relative adverb even for concepts, not only for places, right?

    Re: except where

    Yes, the case could be inserted with the same meaning.

    Write a relative, not an relative.
