THABIWOGA (a word game I invented) (The stuff on this webpage was mentioned on page 215 in my book.)

I am having trouble getting this game to work the way it's supposed to. I have asked Gumpy (my grandfather who teaches computers at Yale) for help, but he may not be able to work with me until school is out for the summer, so I don't know when it'll get fixed.

Comments from my Readers & Friends

  1. Methionylglutaminylarginyltyrosylglutamylserylleucylphenylalanyetc. This is only 62 of the 1909 letters of the longest word in the English language.

    1. To be exact the longest word in the english language starts like “Methionyl”, goes on for1,893 more letters and ends with “Lserine.” In total it contains 1,909 letters and means the following: This word is the term for the formula C1289H2051N343O375S8. A Tryptophan synthetase A protien, and an enzyme that has 267 amino acids.

  2. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis this is the longest word ever it is a medical term and I don’t even know how to pronounce it I didn’t know if we were supposed to come up with our own word!

    1. Donaudampfschiffahrtselektrizitätenhauptbetriebswerkbauunterbeamtengesellschaft is the longest word in french.

    2. My Granpa was born in Germany. I know he spoke German when he was a kid. But I have never heard him speak it.

    3. Complete these words:
      Betcha can’t do it! 😀

    1. I do not know the longest word. And anyway, the object of the THABIWOGA game is not to come up with the LONGEST word. It’s supposed to be to use the longest and hardest word that is a synonym for the the starting word.

  3. No the longest word is smiles.

    It’s the longest word because it has the word miles.
    My third grade teacher taught us that.

  4. The longest word is pneumenultramicroscopicsilicovovanoconiosis. It is a disease that you get if you breathe in dust from a volcano. 😛

    1. If that doesn’t count then this probably will: Lopado­temacho­selacho­galeo­kranio­leipsano­drim­hypo­trimmato­silphio­parao­melito­katakechy­meno­kichl­epi­kossypho­phatto­perister­alektryon­opte­kephallio­kigklo­peleio­lagoio­siraio­baphe­tragano­pterygon. If that is too much then this: Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.HA! Beat that!

    2. Sorry, Mark, but I had to chop your super-long chemical name word. It was breaking my website.
      Some kids already posted this twice…and I responded.
      Click here:
      And if you think about it, chemical words are not really English. They are the same in every language, so they are actually a different language: the language of chemistry.

  5. Sorry Cheesie Mack, I found it on the last page of my, “A Student’s Dictionary.”

  6. there are hawaiian streets called lunaho’oia, Kalapawai, and all of the words sound confusing but there not.
    malama- TO CARE FOR
    opala- rubbish
    keiki- kid

    1. Hawaiian is a cool language. I know a girl who went to Aikahi School in Kailua whose name was Claire. Everyone called her Claire Bear. She’s in high school now.

  7. The longest word is methionylglutaminylarginyltyrosylglutamylserylleucylphenylalanylalanylglutaminylleucyllysylglutamylarginyllysylglutamylglysylalany.
    Sorry it is already tiring.

  8. I know the longest word in the English Langugage. It is 1,909 letters long. I will write it down write now.
    Methionylglutaminylarginyltyrosylglutamylserylleucylphenylalanylalanylglutaminylleucyllysylglutamylarginyllysylglutamylglysylalanylphenylalanylvalylprolylphenylalanylyalylthreonylleucylglcycylaspartylprolylglicylisoleucyglutamylglutaminlserylleucyllysylisoleucylaspartylthreonylleucylisoleucylglutamylalanyglyclyalanylaspartylalanylleucyglutamylleucylgluycylisoleucylproluylphenylalanyserylaspartyprolylleucelalanylaspartylglycylprtlytheonylisolleucyglutaminylasparaginylalanythreonylleucylarginylalanylphenylalanylalanylalanylglycylvalylthreonylprolylalanyglutaminylcystienlphenylalanylglglutamylmethionylleucyalanylleucylisoleucylarginylglutaminyllysylhistidylprolythreonylisoleucylprolylisoleucylglycylleucylleucymethionyltyrosylalanylasbaraginylleucylvalylphenylalanylsparaginyyllysylglycylisoleucylaspartylglutamyphenylalanylaltyrosylalanylglutaminylcysteinyglutamyllysylvalyl. and that is only 12 out of the 26 rows it takes in the dictionary. write the next part tommorrow.

  9. Cheese-eater dude, will u put the game on already it eathier. A me B u
    C grapes or D all of the above of whose fault it is for my coumputer not having the word game.i get F’s in school but my guess is C.Totally the grapes,WAIT I MEAN A. Yup,wait YIKES. no wonder i get F’s i mean B its u

  10. I am one of few people who does not have friskatrickaddekaphobia or trikadekaphobia!

  11. SHOOT! soryr i meant to say “i didnt even use a DICTIONARY for that”. Considering i can spell “antidisestablishmentarianism”, I can’t belive I made that mistake! 🙁

  12. My uncle is an english teacher and when i was 6, he taught me “antidisestablishmentarianism”. And I didn’t even use a calculator for that! haha 😀

  13. The longest word in English language is like in the thousands i like the word floccinaucinihilipilification i memorized the spelling 🙂

  14. you better not have logophobia,the fear of words.the longest word in english is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconocniosis!it has somthing to do with volocanick ash.(i win)p.s.s.I did not make this wrd up

    1. If you allow scientific words, then pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconocniosis is NOT the longest word in English because there are chemical names that can go on forever. One of these, titin, a protein found in muscle, has over 189,000 letters! You can see the name here:

    2. That’s true. TITIN has only five letters. But TITIN is not the scientific name for the protein. The scientific name has over 189,000 letters. That’s why scientific names should not count if you’re looking for the longest word in English.

    3. it should count because it is english(or latin) and some people might memorize the spelling

    1. I think she means that there aren’t enough people on your site, considering how many should love your book.

    1. Watch out! Chronomentrophobia must really tick you off. I have to hand it to you. First, you face a problem that is not minute. Second, time is not on your side.

  15. We can start the word game in the comments! You comment a long word, then the next person to comment tries to make a bigger word, and so on.

    1. Yeah, you’re right to be upset. Me, too. But, really…it’s hard. I tried to get it to work, but NOPE.
