Incorrect Sentence :
I except your offer.
Correct Sentence :
I accept your offer.
Often confused and used one instead of the other, 'except' and 'accept' are words that are greatly varied in meaning. While 'except' refers to 'other than', 'accept' refers to 'agree to'.
So too, it would prove equally disastrous to say I 'expect' your offer, in case of a job offer, as you sound presumptuous, as it would imply that the offer should go to no one other than you, since 'expect' means 'to believe that someone will do something or something will happen' ('will' being the key word).
