The LONGEST Word in English

English Fun Facts:

People will debate this issue, but according to the Oxford English Dictionary, the longest word in the English language is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis .  It’s a 45-letter medical term referring to a lung disease caused by silica dust.  I know, I say this word all the time too.  

Perhaps medical terminology is not fair, and we shouldn't count that.  Then the longest word becomes floccinaucinihilipilification.  This everyday, 29-letter word means...GUESS!  I'll post the answer later this week.

The process of cleaning the enamal between teeth.0%
The act of describing something as having no value.0%
The installation of the interior baseboard trim of a house..0%
Passing out unconscious in a public area due to a high level of inebriation.0%
