The stupid person way to abbreviate "et cetera". The "et" standing for the Latin word "et" and the "c." standing for the Latin word "cētera", hence "etc." and NOT "ect."
Child #1: I don't understand why people call me stupid, dumb, and ect.

Child #2: Maybe it's because you spelled "etc." incorrectly, and put an "and" before the et cetera (which is redundant).

Child #1: That explains it.

ect. is an often falsely used abbreviation for et cetera which means "and so on/forth".
Also it is not one word as implied by the most upvoted definition and you DON'T use "and" in front of it, since "et" means "and" in Latin.
