The longest word in the English language

The English word antidisestablishmentarianism(UK: /ˌæntidɪsɪstæblɪʃmənˈtɛəriənɪzəm/ (About this sound

listen), US: /ˌæntˌdɪsɛ-/ (About this sound

listen)) is notable for its unusual length of 28 letters and 12 syllables, and is one of the longest words in the English language.[1] It has been cited as the longest word in the English language (excluding coined and technical terms). The longest word found in a major dictionary is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, but this is a technical term that was coined specifically to be the longest word.[1][2][3]
