Yeah. It's popular when you are a fan of Mary Poppins. I heard it's the longest word in the dictionary. Julie Andrews sang that song "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" in Mary Poppins.

I've never heard of the meaning, nontheless how to spell it. I think most of us in the USA have been acustomed to the term from the Disney movie Mary Poppins and they have a lil song in there about it... but it is not really used in everyday conversation unless you are discussing the movie or the actress who sang the song.

That made up word belongs to a movie: Mary Poppins. I have the feeling that it means more than wonderful, but as English is not my native language I cannot be absolutly sure. Peolpe younger than me will know exactly what it means. The language changes. Even in my own language, sometimes I canĀ“t understand what my teenage grandchildren are saying. I unsdertand the smaller ones though. Take care, friend

Hello. Yes I already heard that word. It's the longest word accepted in our English/British vocabulary or dictionaries. It's quite long and I wouldn't bother to memorize or use that word. Hehe. shadow41
