    Re: the difference between except and except for

    I will be interested in this too. Except for the way a sentence is phrased, you can use either "except" or "except for" in most cases as far as I know.

    Example: Except for Carl, everyone knew the answer to the problem. is the same as... Everyone knew the answer to the problem except Carl.

    right?

    hmmmm I will be interested in the answers...
