    еще с десяток

    Does еще с десяток have an exact meaning? It appears to mean "many more."
    thanks

    Ватерклозет, он же унитаз, он же сортир. Этот прибор имеет еще с десяток названий.
    Кому - нары, кому - Канары.

    "еще с десяток" = additionally about ten

    "с тысячу" = about one thousand

    etc.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    No it does not, just something around a dozen more and if you could call a dozen many, then - "many more." ))

    Actually in my opinion it does have an exact meaning, though the meaning itself is "about ten more". The word "десяток" itself means ten, not dozen, so it's not something around a dozen, but around ten instead; the preposition "с" stands for "around", compare еще десять названий and еще с десяток названий.
