    Are there any words in the English dictionary ending in the letters "wa?"

    Off the top of my head, I can think of "schwa", which is not commonly used in conversation; it is used in phonetic transcription.

    There is also the Native American tribe called the Objibwa, and the capital city of Canada, Ottawa.
