  1. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is listed as the longest word in a published dictionary. I can barely phonetically sound this thing out. I just thought it was a mind blowing word and figured I would share it.

    Now say it three times fast!!!!
  2. BTW, It's a lung disease more often referd to as silicosis.
  3. I thought antidisestablishmentarianism was the longest word in the english dictionary...

    This a new word or a made up word?
  4. It's real. I remember learning that word in 4th grade.
  5. It is a real word. All words are technically 'made up.' This word, however, was not 'coined' It is a technical term for a lung disease implemented specifically to be the longest published word in the English language
