“After you finish cooking, make sure you clean all the pots and pans and whatnot that you used.”

“Whatnot” pretty much always comes at the end of a list of things, even if it’s a very short list. It represents other things that are not included in the rest of the list, similar to “et cetera”. This lets you include a lot of things without saying the name of each one.


Whatnot は、物のリストの最後に来ます(短いリストでも)。エトセトラと同じように、リストに含まれないものを表します。これで一つ一つの名前をあげずにすみますね。
