- except (except for) = apart from 'We work every day except Sunday.' 'Everyone was there except (for)/apart from Tom, who was ill.' - unless = except if = if ... not 'You can't go in unless you are a member.' = 'You can't go in except if you are a member.' = 'You can't go in if you are not a member.' = 'You can go in only if you are a member.'
