Synonyms of "Last" and their differences

Q: В чем разница между last и remain ?
A: They can often be used interchangeably, but in my mind the primary difference is this:

"last" makes me think of position or a step in a sequence.
"remainder" or "remaining" or "what remains" me think about resource consumption.

He is the last person in line. <--- a sequence of people with him in the final position.
He is all that remains of the line. <--- there was a line, but it has been "consumed" and he is what is left

In that example, there is a very different implication. In both cases, the person is the final one, but in one case the line is still there, and in the other, the line is gone.

In this case, the difference is not clear:
This is the last of the soup.
This is what remains of the soup.

In both of these, the soup is almost gone and there is one "serving" left. A native speaker will likely say they mean the same thing, and they probably do. For me, however, the tone is slightly different.

Let's say you are a warehouse worker, and are performing an inventory.
"This is the last of the soup" could mean "This is the last of the soup. I will now count the cans of beans." In other words, with more context, you realize "last" is again being used in a counting sequence.

"This is what remains of the soup. I will now count the cans of beans." sounds strange to me. It's correct, but I would never phrase it this way because for me, "remains" used this way is inconsistent with just counting.

I could say, "I need to count what remains of the soup, and then move on to counting cans of beans." This sounds fine. Count what's left of the consumed soup, and then move on to the beans.

I'm sorry if that isn't very clear. You picked an interesting question. Good luck!
Q: В чем разница между last и end ?
A: ‘Last’ is defined as ‘coming after all others, in time or number’. Can also be used to signify that there is only one of something.

Examples: ‘she ate the last slice of pizza’

‘He was the last one in the line’

‘She read the last page of the book’


‘End’ is a final part in something such as time, activity, place, or story.

Examples: ‘he was at the end of the line’.

‘She was at the end of the book’.
Q: В чем разница между at last и finally ?
A: They mean the same thing but finally is typically used in a positive situation. At last can be used in a positive or negative situation.
Q: В чем разница между last и final ?
A: There isn't a big difference. Last is more of a description, whereas final has an emphasis on the fact that it's last. For example, if I say "the last day of school" I am really just telling you about a day, and I'm calling it the last day of school so you know which day I'm talking about. However, if I say "the final day of school", the focus of this phrase is that this day IS the last day. Also, final is most definitive; the last day of school could normally be the day before any vacation or holiday, but the final day of school usually would mean the last day of school ever (you will never go back to school). I hope this makes sense.
Q: В чем разница между last и latest ?
A: Last often refers to the final item in a list or ranking.

Latest refers the most recent item.

"I ate the last piece of candy."
"Their latest album was released in 2015."
