Last wordism is a liberal tactic used in an informal debate or discussion, resorting in the belief that victory can be achieved by having the "last word." A statement can be identified as last wordism if it adds no new information or substance to an argument. It is intended to achieve its effect through recency[1] rather than through relevance.

Last wordism often betrays the weaknesses of "less intellectually robust presentations."[2]

At best, last wordism is a childish tactic characteristic of liberal style. At worst, it reflects a lack of personal responsibility or bullying, which is a characteristic of wrongdoing or sinfulness.
