"pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis" Is the longest in the English Language. It is a cracking 45 letters. It is a lung disease from breating in microscopic silicone from a volcano eruption.

Actually, the longest place name (in English) is in New Zealand with;
Taumatawhakatang­ihangakoauauot­amateaturipukaka­pikimaunga­horonuku­pokaiwhenuak­itanatahu

Which is a name of a hill, at 85 letters.

However, place names are not considered 'words' per se, therefore the longest actual English word is floccinaucinihilipilification, which means to estimate the value of something poorly.
(Those of you who reside in the states might recognize that word from the television commercial which takes place during a 'spelling bee'.)


The reason pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is not valid; again, it's not a word. It's a compound proper name for a specific disease -- those crazy doctors are always mixing words together to make a new (and difficult to pronounce) disease name.

Cheers.

In Polish, the longest word I've found is:
dziewiecsetdziewiecdziesieciodziewieciomilionowodziewięcsetdziewiecdziesieciodziewieciotysiecznodziewiecsetdziewiecsetdziewiecdziesieciodziewiecioipolletniemu

It's 166 letters long and it's not a chemical name :). It means, that someone is 999 999 999,5 years old :).

Hi everybody, Hi pedro
It was the same in French
"anticonstitutionnellement" has been considered for a long time as the longest, but in fact there is an another word longer :

"tétrahydrocannabinophobique"

And according to the Fun with words site previously mentioned it means:
"the summit of the hill, where Tamatea, who is known as the land eater, slid down, climbed up and swallowed mountains, played on his nose flute to his loved one."
