    Except/Except for

    Please consider the following sentences that I have written.

    1) Nobody came except for Arup and Sunita.

    2) Nobody came except Arup and Sunita.

    3) Except for Arup and Sunita, nobody came.

    4) Except Arup and Sunita, nobody came.


    Are all the sentences grammatically correct?

    NOT A TEACHER


    About ten years ago, there was a very interesting two-page thread on this topic.

    Please go to Google and type these words: except and except for - Page 2 - UsingEnglish.com Dear Lauralie


    (When you find the thread, be sure to click on page 1 first before reading page 2.)
