ɛtˈsɛt(ə)rə| |ɪt-| (also etcetera)


used at the end of a list to indicate that further, similar items are included : we're trying to resolve problems of obtaining equipment, medicines, et cetera.

indicating that a list is too tedious or clichéd to give in full : we've all got to do our duty, pull our weight, et cetera, et cetera.

ORIGIN Latin, from et ‘and’ and cetera ‘the rest’ (neuter plural of ceterus ‘left over’ ).
