    Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

    This is a 45 letter word and is the longest ever to appear in an English language dictionary.In short it means a lung disease caused by inhalation of silica dust.

    There are much longer technical words however, but these do not appear in English language dictionaries

    I never imagined there is words as long as these! I wonder if there is one person who can pronounce these words.
    I'm looking for words which people frequently use.

    My answer was with regard to your original query. I am not sure whether the length of words are also categorized by usage.
