Throughout Practical English Usage 3rd Edition (Swan, 2005), the author writes etc in a manner I can't help but wonder if it's a typo.
- Much/far/a lot etc more money
- Many/far/a lot etc more opportunities
Throughout the book, he does not put a period (full stop) after "etc" and he never uses commas in combination with "etc".
I'm taking notes by writing the book verbatim on to notebooks, and I've been finding other grammatical mistakes. It's a little disconcerting when trying to use the book as a reference source. I'm hoping you guys can help me figure out if this is just another.
What punctuation should be used with this abbreviation?
