Abstract

Of perennial interest to Word Ways readers are very long English words - words of 27 or more letters, written solidly, without hyphens, apostrophes, or other letter separations. Unfortunately, categories: obscure medical terms: even obscurer medical terms: weird place names of Amerind, Welsh, Maori, Thai, or other equally exotic provenance, resembling nothing even remotely English: fictitious words listed and defined by dictionaries. Examples of fictitious words include:

HONORICICABILITUDINATATIBUS (Web 1 and 2)
