The Longest Word in the English Language Takes 213 Minutes Just to Say [VIDEO]

Here is some crazy, but otherwise worthless information. But for kicks, I thought I’d share with you guys the longest word in the English Language. It doesn’t sound like English and you won’t find it in the dictionary, but it is a real word.

The word is the name of a protein called Titin and has 189,819 letters. Some folks from Unexplained-Mysteries.com debate on whether the name of a chemical can actually be considered a word. (Yes, there are people who worry about such things),

Anyway, the longest word in the dictionary right now is a little old 45 letter word — “pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.” I looked it up, it means a pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of very fine silicate or quartz dust.

And here I thought that “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” was the longest word!

Listen to Dmitry Golubovskiy tackling the word — by the way it takes him 213 minutes to just say the word!
