    Actually the longest word is -

    ANTIDISESTABLISHMENTARIANISM

    - Being against those against the Establishment.

    Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. (I used to know how to spell it, but had to Google it that time.)

    It all depends which dictionary you consult. Some are more lenient than others.

    Which means they are for the Establishment.

    But what does “Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis” signify? You should know to have the definition with the word at all times. It is a disease meaning——


    Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis 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.’"1 A condition meeting the word’s definition is normally called silicosis.

    This is how Germans build new words, they tack on all aspects of it and get long trains. We don’t need to do that in most cases.

    It was late and I was being lazy. I didn’t feel like taking the time to explain that it can be debated as to whether it is an accepted word, or not. As Stephen Gilberg pointed out, different sources have different opinions. I think it is a fine example of the same word class (as pointed out in today’s strip) as floccinaucinihilipilification.
