Synonyms of 'et cetera'

and so on
and so forth
The literal meaning of the Latin phrase et cetera is `and other things'. The use of and in a list ending with et cetera, as in we bought bread, cheese, butter, and et cetera, is therefore redundant. Nor is there ever any need to repeat the phrase et cetera for emphasis at the end of a list. Such repetition, as in he bought paper, ink, notebooks, et cetera, et cetera is very informal and should not be used in writing or formal speaking.
