    PNEUMONO ULTRA MICRO SCOPIC SILICO VOLCANO KONIOSIS (45)

    A lung disease caused by breathing in particles of siliceous volcanic dust.

    This is the longest word in any English dictionary. However, it was coined by Everett Smith, the President of The National Puzzlers' League, in 1935 purely for the purpose of inventing a new "longest word". The Oxford English Dictionary described the word as factitious. Nevertheless it also appears in the Webster's, Random House, and Chambers dictionaries.

    TAUMATA WHAKA TANGI HANGA KOAUAU O TAMATEA TURIPUKAKA PIKI MAUNGA HORO NUKU POKAI WHENUA KITANA TAHU (85)

    A hill in New Zealand. This Maori name was in general use, but is now generally abbreviated to Taumata. The name means: the summit of the hill, where Tamatea, who is known as the land eater, slid down, climbed up and swallowed mountains, played on his nose flute to his loved one.
