Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words

Except, Excepted:

Note: For the negative conjunctions ean me and ei me, see †, p. 9

W. E. Vine provided the following footnote on page 9 of his expository dictionary:
In the following pagesindicates that the word referred to (preposition, conjunction, or particle) is not dealt with in this volume.

1 Strong's Number: g1622 Greek: ektos

Except, Excepted:

an adverb, lit., "outside," is used with ei me, as an extended conjunction signifying "except;" so in 1Cr 14:5; in 1Cr 15:2, RV, for AV, "unless;" in 1Ti 5:19, RV, for AV, "but." It has the force of a preposition in the sense of

(a) "outside of," in 1Cr 6:18, "without;" in 2Cr 12:2, "out of;"

(b) "besides," except, in Act 26:22, RV, "but," for AV, "other than;" in 1Cr 15:27 "excepted." For its use as a noun see Mat 26:26, "(the) outside."

2 Strong's Number: g3924 Greek: parektos

Except, Excepted:

a strengthened form of No. 1 (para, beside), is used

(a) as an adverb, signifying "without," 2Cr 11:28; lit., "the things without," i.e., the things happening without;

(b) as a preposition signifying "except;" in Mat 5:32, "saving;" in Act 26:29, "except."

Note: In Mat 19:9, the AV and RV, translating the mss. which have the negative me, followed by epi, render it "except for." The authorities mentioned in the RV marg. have parektos, followed by logou, i.e., "saving for the cause of."

3 Strong's Number: g4133 Greek: plen

Except, Excepted:

an adverb, most frequently signifying "yet, howbeit," or "only," sometimes has the meaning "except (that)," "save (that)," Act 20:23; Phl 1:18, RV, "only that," for AV, "notwithstanding." It is also used as a preposition, signifying "except, save," Mar 12:32, "but;" Jhn 8:10, "but" (AV only); Act 8:1, "except;" Act 15:28, "than," 27:22, "but (only)."
