This is a documentation subpage for Template:Last word.
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.

This template returns the last word of the first parameter, i.e. the last non-space token after the last space. Use |1= for the first parameter if the string may contain an equals sign (=).

By default, words are delimited by spaces, but the optional parameter |sep= can set the separator to any character. Exception: If a percent sign (%) is wanted as separator, |sep= has to be set to %% instead of %. This is because the percent sign is a special symbol in Lua patterns which is used to represent character classes.


One parameter (space as separator):

  • {{Last word|string}}
  • {{Last word|1=string}}

Two parameters (user-defined character as separator):

  • {{Last word|string|sep=character}}
  • {{Last word|1=string|sep=character}}


  • {{Last word|Select last word}} → word
  • {{Last word|Select last}} → last
  • {{Last word|Select}} → Select
  • {{Last word|Select, last word|sep=,}} → last word
  • {{Last word|Foo-bar|sep=-}} → bar
  • {{Last word|1=len = a+b|sep==}} → a+b
