Last word in the dictionary

From:James Campbell <james@...>

For a forthcoming new section on my website, I'm putting together a list of
the last words in the dictionary in as many languages as possible - mainly
natlangs, but conlangs are also welcome. Where better to ask for submissions
than here, from my fellow langheads? :)

If you'd like to contribute, please mail me offlist on,
and please try to provide at least one natlang for each conlang - although I
want to include conlangs, very few have actual real printed dictionaries,
and the page may have a (slightly) broader appeal if it's mainly natlangs.
(As if it will have any appeal at all...)

If possible, please specify the source of your information (i.e. which
dictionary), the meaning of the word in English, and a transliteration and
.gif if the alphabet is non-roman. Abbreviations are excluded; subentries
will be permitted if they're single words. I've made a start with 17
natlangs from my bookshelf, including words for bacon-rind (Dutch) and
foot-and-mouth disease (Russian).

I await your response with interest, folks.
