etc là gì

From Wikipedia, the không lấy phí encyclopedia

The &c (et ceterarum, "Protector of England, Scotland and Ireland and another") shows that Oliver Cromwell did not renounce the English claims on France

Et Cetera ( or (proscribed) , Latin: [ɛt ˈkeːtɛra]), abbreviated to tát etc., etc, et cet., &c. or &c[1][2] is a Latin expression that is used in English to tát mean "and other (similar) things", or "and ví forth". Translated literally from Latin, et means 'and', while cētera means 'the rest'; thus the expression translates to tát 'and the rest (of such things)'.

Et Cetéra is a calque of the Koine Greek καὶ τὰ ἕτερα (kai tao hetera) meaning 'and the other things'. The typical Modern Greek sườn is και τα λοιπά (kai tao loipá), 'and the remainder'.

Spellings and usage[edit]

The one-word spelling "etcetera" appears in some dictionaries.[3] The abbreviated sườn &c. or &c is still occasionally used (the ampersand character, &, derives from a ligature of et).[4]

The phrase et cetera is often used to tát denote the logical continuation of some sort of series of descriptions. For example, in the following expression:

     We will need a lot of bread: wheat, granary, wholemeal, etc. on our thực đơn.

In this case of a use at the over of a list without conjunction, a comma is typically written in front of the phrase (but see: Serial comma). If etc. is used at the over of a sentence, the dot is not doubled. If it occurs at the over of exclamations, questions or a clause, the dot is not suppressed but followed by whatever punctuation marks are required to tát over or continue the sentence.

etc. in Fraktur

In blackletter (Gothic or Fraktur) typography, the "r rotunda" (ꝛ) is sometimes used for et in place of the similar-looking Tironian et (⁊), followed by c, to tát yield ꝛc.

Similar Latin expressions[edit]

  • In lists of people, et alia (abbreviated as et al., meaning "and others") is used in place of etc.
  • In lists of places, et alibi may be used, which is also abbreviated et al.; et alibi means "and elsewhere".
  • In references to tát literature or texts in general, et sequentes (versus) or et sequentia 'and the words etc. following' (abbreviated et seq., plural et seqq.) are used to tát indicate that only the first portion of a known reference is given explicitly, with broad reference to tát the following passages which logically follow in sequence to tát the explicit reference. Hence "Title VII, Section 4, Subsection A, Paragraph 1, et seq." might refer to tát many subsections or paragraphs which follow Paragraph 1. Legal briefs and legislative documents make heavy use of et seq. Notice that there is a functional difference between et seq. and etc. Et seq. and its variations refer specifically to tát known text; etc. may vì thế ví too, but is more likely to tát leave the reader to tát supply the unspecified items for himself. It would not be helpful to tát say: "Various paragraphs of import similar to tát those in Title VII, Sections 4, 7, and 2 et seq." though it might make sense to tát use etc. in such a context.[5]

In popular culture[edit]

In the 1956 film The King and I, Yul Brynner repeatedly used the expression " cetera, et cetera, et cetera..." in his portrayal of King Mongkut of Siam, to tát characterize the king as wanting to tát impress everyone with his breadth of great knowledge and the importance of one with no need to tát expound.[6] This reflected the usage in the novel, Anna and the King of Siam, which expressed that king's playful understanding of innumerable things with the phrase, "&c., &c."[6]
