    This dictionary has all those words:
    pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis - definition of pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Note the spelling - 'pneumo' - related to the lungs.

    Re: longer vocabulary

    Note that 99% of us will never use these words. If you are learning a specialized vocabulary for a specific job, that's fine, but if you are simply trying to build your vocabulary, they aren't good choices.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: longer vocabulary

    Particularly for such specialised vocabulary, a good online dictionary should be the first place you look for a definition, not here. If you really don't understand the definition, then feel free to post the word and the definition here and we can see if we can help you.
