Synomym: incluant (present participle of inclure – to include)

Y compris can also mean "included" – note that compris (the past participle of comprendre) acts an adjective here and must therefore agree with the noun it modifies.

J’ai tout nettoyé, les fenêtres y comprises.   I cleaned everything, windows included.

Synonym: inclus (past participle of inclure)
