Submitted by: fancylad 4 years ago Science

The longest word in the world--it has 189,819 letters and it"s the chemical name of titin. Unnecessary if you ask me.

In case people are interested: titin is a protein found in muscle. Every protein is made up of a string of amino acids, and so since titin is the longest known functional protein, and the technical name for any protein is a string of the amino acids in order: you have the longest word. (I know you could look it up if you were really interested, but just thought I`d throw it out there.) SCIENCE!

"your a idiot,"

So says the person who made 4 mistakes in just 3 words."

SinuouSDJ is right though: get your facts straight before you open your mouth. the intellectual arrogance a lot of europeans apparently need to display towards the us is getting tedious, too.

Every ADN string of anything could be decomposed like that and it would get a lot longer than this... This is not a word its a composition.

Titin is the longest human protein, and helps make your muscles elastic. Pronouncing every amino acid (which I believe are the same in any language) is a silly and pointless exercise.
So there.

If you`re going to call this English why have a Russian (with such a thick accent, no less) read it? Besides, that`s not a word, its a verbal formula.

Theres several cuts in there. (Just scroll through the preview and watch what happens to the plant next to him. The cuts are pretty jarring when watched at normal speed too)

Which English word is the longest is always a topic of debate. Chemical names can go on pretty much indefinitely. As such, usually only words that do not have their origin from chemical or genetic nomenclature are counted. Still, props to that guy for managing to talk that long.
