Et cetera

I keep hearing people - even on the news on telly! - pronouncing this as 'ek setera'.

That is so annoying! There is no 'k' sound in that word! Except if you're old skool Roman. They pronounced "c" as 'k'. But then the 'k' would be in the second word 'et ketera'.

When I hear, otherwise well educated, people saying 'ek setera' I just feel like throwing a hissy fit and claw their eyes out!!
