The Longest English Word in English

The longest English word in the English language is a verifiable pile of nonsense, it has almost 190.000 letters and it will take you hours to pronounce. Since I have no desire to break my website with nearly a quarter of a million letters, I’ll leave you with the first and last few hundred letters of this rather ridiculous word.

Part One

Oh brother. And by the way, if you must use this monster of a word, I recommend you simply use the more common word, “titin”. Titin is a gigantic protein that provides elasticity to your muscles. Cool, eh?

[…] Methionylthreonylthreonylglutaminylarginyltyrosylglutamy […]

Part Two

[…] glutaminylserylglutamylasparaginylglutaminylglutaminylserxisoleucine.

Final Thoughts

It is likely that the word above is some kind of hoax, and thus not actually the longest word ever. Most dictionaries claim that pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis (also known as silicosis) is the longest word.

Medical words: being a pain in the lung since doctors gained the ability to make the most insanely long words known to man.
