    Hi,
    What's the abbreviation that I write for ( and others) If I'm writing about a book that's written by many authors but I just want
    to mention one of them?

    Thank you : )

    It's "et al." (from the Latin et alies, which most people wouldn't know in full). For example, Arabic for Fun and Profit by Procrastinator et al.
