what is the full name of "/etc"?


"/etc " is the directory structure of Linux,but is it a abreviation?
what's the full name of it?

when i use the linux,there are lots of abbreviatons,so i don't know what the words using in linux means ,and i often forget how to spell them ,what them can do by their names .
