Last wordism is the belief that victory can be obtained in a debate or discussion by having the "last word." Some argue that last wordism is often a characteristic of "less intellectually robust presentations."[1]

Last wordism reflects a lack of restraint, a characteristic of wrongdoing or sin. Christians believe that the the Resurrection, which they believe was Christ's response to the Crucifixion, is an example of last wordism.
