I have been looking forward to this post since the beginning of the challenge. Not because I am happy the challenge is over (more like relieved) but because I am really curious as to what the last words in my dictionaries are!
Paperback Merriam Webster (2004):
zygote – a cell formed by the union of two sexual cells
That is the last word in the regular section. But then there are three specialty sections (Foreign words and phrases, Biographical names and Geographical names). So the last word in the book as a whole is Zurich. A city in Switzerland.
The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (Second Edition 1990):
zyzzyva – a tropical weevil
Webster’s Third New International Dictionary (1981):
zyzzogeton – genus of leafhoppers
I love how all three dictionaries had different last words. Two of the three words were new to me.
Does anyone have a different last word in their dictionary?
