all, any, every, no, none, anything, anybody, anyone, everything, everybody, everyone, nobody, nothing 等表示總括的不定代名詞之後,一般都用 "except" 而不用 "except for"

except 用於表示同類事物之間的關係,而 except for 表示非同類事物進行比較。

"except for" 在表示對整體大部分的肯定和對小部分的否定 -- 亦即包含大部分,除去小部分。

"except for" 有「若非;要不是」的意思,"except" 並無此意思。

(我母親沒有給我任何錢,除了買書以外。→買書會給錢)

moneybook是不同類別的事物,因此使用except for

everyoneI 是同類,因此使用except

Except for the service, I enjoy everything about this restaurant. (置於句首)
