PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ɛtˈɑːl/, /eɪˈtɑːl/, /ɛtˈæl/

Etymology 1Edit

From Latin, abbreviation of et (and) and alii (others) (English: et alii) and its forms and derivatives.

PhraseEdit

et al.

  1. And others; to complete a list, especially of people, as authors of a published work.
Usage notesEdit

Formally preferred by some over etc. for lists of people in all contexts, reserving etc. for lists of things (inanimate objects); the distinction is sometimes ignored in casual use, and the two abbreviations are used synonymously in many contexts for completing lists except in very careful or formal use. However, in lists of authors of a published work, et al. is still regularly used.
