    "Et al (et alii)" is Latin for "and others".

    It is a commonly used Latin phrase... probably because it's nice and short.

    It is a commonly used phrase. Its just like RSVP which stands for "Rpondez s'il vous plat" literally translated to "respond please". Isnt it odd how we use untranslated phrases so much?

    Our entire language is "borrowed" (or derived from other languages, I should say), so it's not really that odd. And this has gotten pretty off-topic, but thank you for the translation of RSVP... I knew what the "R" stood for, but never knew how literal the phrase is (had no idea that "SVP" stood for "s'il vous plait"). Thanks!
