Hippopotomonostrosousquippidalaphobia

When you first read this, what did you think it meant?

its a fear of long words

kinda ironic isn't it? for those who have it its called longa-phobia

Hip hop annonyamus!

the fear of long words.with a long word that makes no sence but whateva

more like kittie h4x!

Same sort of thing as making the word "lisp" the one word people with a lisp can't pronounce, or giving people with dyslexia the word most normal people can't even spell.

o yaa
this word means black lung cancer
pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis
^^

lol. reading the title of this postwell, i read the word 'hippo' and then stopped reading. so i never actually got to the 'phobia' part, so i figured it was just a really long way to spell 'hippo' >.>

There are much longer words than that, allthough hes right about thats the longest word IN THE DICTIONARY.

Techically Speaking, this site http://www.fun-with-words.com/word_longest.html has all the words that are the longest in it.

IT EVEN SAYS that a DNA molecule, if written out in full, could have over 1,000,000,000 <<big aint it letters in it.

There were also 2 other scientific words that were in the guinness word record, but lack of use by scientists made them obsolete.
