This template removes 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.

One parameter (space as separator):

  • {{Remove last word|string}}
  • {{Remove last word|1=string}}

Two parameters (user-defined character as separator):

  • {{Remove last word|string|sep=character}}
  • {{Remove last word|1=string|sep=character}}
  • {{Remove last word|Remove last word}} → Remove last
  • {{Remove last word|Remove last}} → Remove
  • {{Remove last word|Remove}} → Remove
  • {{Remove last word|Remove, last word|sep=,}} → Remove
  • {{Remove last word|Foo-bar|sep=-}} → Foo
  • {{Remove last word|1=len = a+b|sep==}} → len
