    According to Wikipedia, the longest English word has 189,819 letters!!!

    If you want to trump your smart-a*s friends who use "antidisestablishmentarianism", replace it with "NEOantidisestablishmentarianismABILITY", [is-mah-bil-it-ee"> the ability to have a new type of opposition of state support etc...

    And when you`re next in New Zealand, be sure to visit Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahul.

    Im calling BS on #12. It translates to: "fear of large, hippo sized, monstrous, 5-foot-long-words"
    The work for "fear of large words" would just be
    "megalogophobia" ...which i guess is kind of big
