I have a couple questions regarding idioms:
1) "Except for" and "with the exception of".....are these both correct idiom?
2) "Instead of" vs "rather than"......how can we tell which one to use?

Thanks

with the exception of is verbose for except , except for
Idiom : except for, if it were not for

Instead of can be only used to compare nouns e,g; I wanted apples instead of oranges.

But rather than does not have such restrictions.

Hope this helps
