Default Re: World's longest word:: way over 9000!

The longest word in the English dictionary is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis at 45 letters. An 8 year old I know knows that.

Two things: the "word" in question is defined (no pun intended) as a chemical formula, not a word. And second, the formula in question is 189819 letters long.
