The lastWord() operator has one parameter, data (a quoted a string), and it returns the final word of the data string. The delimiter used to define words is one or more spaces (possibly also line break(s)?).

The data parameter is evaluated so could be an expression. For example, if the note 'First Line' has the body text "Winter is coming.", then

$MyString = lastWord($Text("First Line")); 

should give a result of "coming".
