I triple checked......and it IS Wednesday!

The longest word in the English language, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.

The only other word with the same amount of letters is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconioses, its plural.

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicavolcanoconiosis is a form of a lung disease, pneumoconiosis, caused by the inhalation of a fine silica dust, ash and sand found in most volcanoes.


I'm not going to try to say it 10 times, slowly......can't even do it once! Who'd come up with such a word?

That's way too long for me. Fortunately I will probably never need to use that word!! Doctors probably have a little abbreviation for it....maybe PMV.

I don't think too many people around these parts are afflicted with it.

I, once upon a time, had a little girl (parents were both lawyers) that loved big words. She would have loved that one!

UGH... not ready for today.

Doctor says I'm going back in a cast, dreading this. I fell several times with the last cast and broke the left ring finger. Frankly I am tired of sitting on my arse all day! Rant over.

Hope y'all have a great Wednesday!

I don't have enough letters to make that a scrabble word

grammaterry, They wouldn't believe it was a Real word even if you had enough Scrabble letters!!
Maggie, hope this is the last cast you will need. Be careful and follow all Doctors suggestions.

Thanks Anita. That's a way too long for me to try saying.

Monique, I laughed out loud when I read your post. I was thinking almost the exact same words.
