Is omega the last letter?
Omega (uppercase Ω, lowercase ω) is the 24th and last letter of the Greek alphabet. In the Greek numeric system, it has a value of 800. Pronounced [ɔ:] or 'aw' as in 'raw'.
In modern Greek, both omicron and omega represent the mid back rounded vowel IPA: [o̞] or IPA: [ɔ̝]. Letters that arose from omicron include Roman O and Cyrillic O. The word literally means "little O" (o mikron) as opposed to "great O" (ō mega).
Omicron is Greek for 'little o' and is distinct from the term 'omega' which is the last letter of the alphabet.
