  • Hello everyone, it's Hadar,

  • and this is the "Accent's Way",

  • your way to finding clarity, confidence

  • and freedom in English.

  • Today, I wanna talk about the three words

  • except, accept, and expect.

  • I know it may be complicated at first

  • but bear with me, I'll get you there.

  • Let's begin with the two words except and accept.

  • As you can hear, these are pretty similar.

  • That's because the ending is

  • absolutely the same, "-sept".

  • That's also the primary stress of the word.

  • So, the difference is in the beginning.

  • In the word except, you begin with an "i"

  • as in sit vowel sound, "i"

  • and then you move to a "k" sound, "ik", "ik",

  • the second syllable "sept"

  • an "s" sound, "e" and a "p" and a "t",

  • "sept", "sept".

  • In the word accept

  • you start with the "a" as in cat,

  • open mouth pull your lips to the sides a bit,

  • push your tongue forward, "a"

  • and then again a "k" sound,

  • accept,

  • except,

  • accept,

  • "ik",

  • "ak",

  • "ik",

  • "ak".

  • Pretty different right.

  • However, and there is always a however

  • hiding there somewhere.

  • When you speak really quickly

  • the beginning of the two words

  • may reduce to a "schwa"

  • and both words may sound the same,

  • accept and except all right?

  • Different meanings you, hear it in the context

  • but the pronunciation may be the same, except.

  • To our purposes let's make the distinction between the two

  • except and accept right?

  • That way you are not mistaken.

  • The difference between this word

  • and the word expect is a bit more

  • noticeable, all right?

  • Listen to the difference, except, expect

  • here the difference is in the second syllable.

  • So it begins the same, except,

  • the second syllable is "sept"

  • and in the word expect,

  • the second syllable is "spect"

  • so we have that "P" sound in the middle.

  • So you compare "sept" versus "spect", right?

  • That's pretty different.

  • "Cept" and then "s" close your lips for the "p",

  • "p", open it to the vowel 'spay' and end it with

  • "kt",

  • "kt",

  • a "k" sound and a "T"

  • "kt"

  • expect,

  • accept.

  • Alright so now let's look look at all three words.

  • Except, except for me,

  • accept,

  • accept your offer and expect,

  • I expect you to subscribe to my youtube channel.

  • Except, accept,

  • expect.

  • Alright I hope now it's a little clearer

  • and the fog is dissolved from these three words.

  • All right, thank you for watching,

  • please share this video with your friends if you liked it

  • and do not forget to subscribe to my YoutTube channel,

  • you can also come on over and check out my website

  • for more great content,

  • and that's it!

  • Thank you for watching and I will see you next week

  • in the next video.

  • Bye!
