Et seq. is the abbreviation of a range of Latin phrases, all deriving from the Latin verb sequor, which means to follow. These include the singular form “et sequitur” (the one thing following) and the plural form “et sequentes” or “et sequentia” (for the several things following). Et seq. means “and the following” and denotes a list or series of items that continues from the item cited just prior to the “et seq.” abbreviation.
