Interesting Words – whatnot

The word “whatnot” is used to mean “and other related things”, or simply “etc”.
It can also mean “miscellaneous items”; and synonyms for this include “bric-a-brac”, “knicknack” (countable) and “knicknackery” (uncountable).

Here is an example I saw today from somebody’s Tweet:
“You all OK? Just checking in… making sure you’re all good and whatnot. “
