et ceteræ

  1. (hypercorrect, obsolete) Alternative form of et cetera

Usage notes[edit]

  • A hypercorrect form of et cetera, mistaking its plural neuter form as a singular feminine one and usually ignoring its position in the sentence. Only actually correct when used for a list of women in the subject of a sentence, a situation where English generally prefers "et al.".
