    You can answer the above later, look at this word: Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

    I found it in Wikipedia; it is, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, "a factitious word alleged to mean 'a lung disease caused by the inhalation of very fine silica dust, causing inflammation in the lungs.'" A condition meeting the word's definition is normally called silicosis.

    Maybe this is the longest word...!
