    • 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: http://j.mp/iDz9M0

        • 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.

    • 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.

  3. 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.
