Et Cetera

Previous Page

Et Cetera :

“Etc.” is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase et cetera, meaning “and the rest.”

Et means “and” in French too.

Just say “et cetera” out loud to yourself to remind yourself of the correct order of the “T” and “C.”

Also to be avoided is the common mispronunciation “excetera.”

“And etc.” is a redundancy.
