what is the longest English word?


Answer by  jennyv8 (133)

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is the longest word to ever appear in an English language dictionary and still appears in many editions. It is a lung disease caused by the inhalation of very fine silica dust, causing inflammation in the lungs.

Although its not the longest, my favorite long word in English is: Antidisestablishmentarianism. You can pretty much figure out what it means by going through all the different parts of the word.
