ect. vs etc. :

ect. vs etc.

ect or etc

Etc is a popular abbreviation of the Latin phrase "etcetera" which translates to "..and the rest" in English. It is often used in writing when a long list can not be continued.

"I'm on my way to the store to get some milk, sugar, cereal, eggs etc."

Ect is an inappropriate misspelling of the word 'etc' usually accompanied by the mispronunciation 'excetera' which is redundant.
