Grammar Rules: Accept vs Except

I haven't noticed errors where Accept vs Except are concerned nearly as frequently lately. I'm still going to go over it here, though! :-)

Accept:
"to agree to."

Examples:
He accepted her proposition.
They accepted each other whole-heartedly.
The credit card accepted, she was free to travel!
Don't accept the donations she gives!

Except:
"with the exclusion of."

Examples:
They liked everything except dessert.
The man took nothing except the girl.
Excepting the hat, your clothes are wonderful.
Leave everything except the cat.

Authors/writers: Make sure you're on my list of authors!
