It can also be read as "等". "等等" is more popular.

comment Resources for learning Mandarin Chinese
I'd recommend HanWangJian, it's a set of softwares focusing on Pinyin Input and Chinese learning. (You have to pay for it.) I'm now using its Pinyin Input Method, friendly to both native speakers and learners.

comment How did 外国人 become 老外?
@halfelf But 老外 is totally different from "alien". Baidu this time gives the right answer. 老外 just describes one who is foreigner, with much friendliness.

comment Etymology of 其他
@Dono You can't say "Japanese did not have any effect on the Chinese expression." 经济, 世界语 and so on are come from Japanese.

comment Why do Chinese translations of English names sound very inaccurate?
@StumpyJoePete In fact, some dialect has "yo" for "约" like Shaanxi dialect. This translation may be from the ancient time, because Middle Chinese (see Wikipedia) pronounces 约 as "yo", "yuo", "you" or similar. (sorry, I can't remember it clearly)
