AMAZING WORDS IN ENGLISH YOU WOULD NEVER BELIEVE EXISTED
Woah! I never believed these words actually existed. I’m in love with English but now I’m beginning to reconsider. Wouldn’t want to have a heart ache at such a young age, now would I? I’m quite sure sesquipedalians would love this. I am a lover of verbose words but you can imagine how flabbergasted I was when I saw them. This is totally worth sharing.
This is a forty-five letter word complexly used to describe a lung disease caused by the inhalation of silica or quartz dust.
This is a thirty letter word which is a mild form of inherited
pseudohypoparathyroidism that simulates the symptoms of the disorder but it is not associated with abnormal levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood.
A twenty-nine letter word which is the estimation of something as valueless. Ironically, floccinaucinihilipilification is a pretty valueless word itself; it’s almost never used except as an example of a long word.
A twenty-eight letter word originally described opposition to the disestablishment of the Church of England, but now it may
refer to any opposition to withdrawing government support of a particular church or religion.
A thirty-four letter word derived from the Mary Poppins movie which most of you probably watched as a child. Mary Poppins described it as the word to use “when you have nothing to say.” It appears in some (but not all) dictionaries.
A thirty seven letter word used by Mark McShane in his novel Untimely Ripped (1963). It means the act of surpassing the act of transubstantiation, which refers specifically to the transformation of the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ during the Roman Catholic mass.
A twenty-seven letter word used to describe the state of being able to receive honours.
A fifty two letter word used to describe the composition of the spawters at Bristol, in Gloucestershire, England. The word was coined by an English medical writer, Dr. Edward Strother (1675 - 1737).
A hundred letter word used on the first page of Finegans Wake by James Joyce and is a symbolic thunderclap representing the fall of Adam and Eve. (Other 100-letter words appear throughout the book.)
A hundred and eighty two words adopted in the English transliteration of a Greek word that occurs in Aristophanes’ play The Ecclesiazusae. The word is defined a "a goulash composed of all the leftovers from the meals of the last two weeks", or "has". A more, detailed translation is "plattero-filletomulleti-turboto-cranio-morselo-pickleo-acido-silphio-honeyo-poured on the top of theouzelo-throstleo-cushato-culvero-roastingo-marrowo-dippero-levereto-syrupo-gibleto-wings.
Seventeen letter words used to describe one who uses long word. If you possess this trait, you will enjoy trying to use the
words in this article in your next conversation. If you are a true sesquipedalian, it should not be too hard. Except, of course, for that 189,819-letter protein name. I wouldn’t bore my readers by attempting to write such an outrageous number off words simply to describe a protein. It’s doubtful that anyone would be patient to wait three hours for one to finish saying it.
I’m balling on my feet after stumbling upon these words. Hit the love button if you love this and to recommend this article to others. Thanks.
