Curiosity is one of the human primordial idiosyncrasy. Everybody wants to learn something. In learning, you are able to annihilate your thirst for knowledge. Indeed, being curious leads us to explore, investigate and learn.
Last night, before I went to sleep, I am really thinking for a new post that will truly bequeaths new information to my blog readers. I came up to a point or an idea to partake with you. Actually, its just a common expression we usually hear if we are too tired of enumerating something. This is already a congruous word to you but I am curious about this. In fact I, myself is also using this word to omit coherent continuation of some sort of series of descriptions and thoughts. You know what I meant, and YES! Its about the word "ETC."
According to my source, "etc" stands for Et Cetera (In English contexts pronounced /ɛt ˈsɛtərə/) is a Latin expression portends "and other things" or "and so forth". It is taken directly from the Latin expression which literally means "and the rest (of such things)" and is a loan-translation of the Greek "και έτερα" (kai hetera; "and the others"). Et means "and" and cetera means "the rest". This word is already accepted as correct by many dictionaries. Typically the abbreviated versions should always be followed by a full stop period and always be preceded by a comma.
After I'm done reading the behind facts about the word "etc", I come to speculate things which totally bothers me. As an individual, as a student, why we need to stop and says etc. if we have that broad ideas in our mind to share with others. Nevertheless, for me saying etc. somehow implies that we are making others believe that we know more than we actually do. Thus, the word etc. stands for
