Apart from = 'except'

Hi everyone,

Is ‘apart from’ the same as ‘except’?

Ex. Apart from a few typos, this grammar mistake is hardly what one would expect from a language expert.


apart from / except for / other than
in that context all work the same way

“Except” only excludes:

“Except for classical, I love music”
“I went to work every day, except Sunday”

“Apart from” can exclude exactly the same way as above, but can also be used to include:

“Apart from rock, I also enjoy rap”
“Apart from pizza, what else do you enjoy eating?”
