Right now there's no other English word longer than that is accepted. This 45 letter word so far is the longest. I have started a similar discussion about the longest English word before: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions.982613.aspx There you could see a great link about word oddities and the longets words in the whole world!

This is a danish word from around the 1200 century: Ornicopytheobibliopsychocrystarroscioaerogenethliometeoroaustrohiero- anothropoichthyopyrosiderochpnomyoalectryoophiobotanopegohydrorhabdocritho- aleuroalphitohalomolybdoclerobeloaxinocoscinodactyliogeolithonpessopsephrocatop- trotephraoneirochoonychodactyloarithstichooxogeloscogastrogyrocerobletonooeno- scapulinaniac I don't think anyone can say it today... Actually I'm not sure if anyone ever said it back then!? It got a lot of press a few years back because a young kid speeled his (or her) way thourgh the entire word... That's 310 letters :-)

Hi repzkoopz. My God this is the longest word I have ever seen. Does this word exist really? I have a hard time believing it. Who can remember a word like that? I am wondering why would scientific people choose such a long word that they would not remember themselves. I guess we have seen a lot of bizarre things.
