Hello All,

Could you, my trusty List friends, help me with this one.

What is the appropriate usage of the word etc.

For example:

1. When it is in the middle of a sentence, should a comma follow it?


2. When etc. is at the end of a sentence and the sentence ends with a
question mark or a period, how do you handle this?


3. When etc. is at the end of a sentence but in parentheses, what would
you do here:
(computers, printers, scanners, etc.). OR
(computers, printers, scanners, etc.)


I have seen the usage of this little acronym in so many different forms
that now I am confused.

Thanks for your help.

Cassie
