Some words are hard to pronounce and even harder to spell. And the longest word in English is not something you would like to write on a piece of paper, because its likely that you wouldn’t remember it any which way.
THE LONGEST WORD
Although the longest word is not something you would use is in a conversation as it is a chemical name but it still qualifies as the longest word with a total of 189,819 letters. Also, the word takes three-and-a-half hours to pronounce – the time you can spend to go out, watch a movie and have dinner at the end.
The Word is so long that it cannot be written here as well. Here is the start and end of the word for reference:
Meaning: It is the chemical name for the human protein titin.
