Longest Tongue Twisters
So someone posted on my members only board supposedly the world’s longest word…..supposedly, the longest word on earth is from Finland and is as follows
61 characters and translates approximately to technical warrant officer trainee specialized in aircraft jet engines. This word has actually been in use in the Finnish Air Force.
While messing around today on Myspace I threw out the question what is the longest…. tongue twister out there…. and so far got the following:
I am wondering if that is the best we can do for the longest word in either the English language or foreign language.. I googled pneumonoul….. and came up with nothing. Maybe the spellings are wrong. Just throwing it out there……
i think the longuest word is elaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaastic !
Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is the longest word in the English language at 45 letters.
It means “black lung disease,” also known as coal miner’s disease.
You are doing a wonderful thing here on the Internet. I wish you the very best. Kindest regards.
These are technically not words, but names. However, in Wales there is: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch means; “St. Mary’s Church in the hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio near the red cave.”
This is the one I knew about. When I went looking for the correct spelling of the name, I also found out that:
Thailand has a town whose name has 163 letters:
Krungthepmahanakornamornratanakosinmahintarayutthayamahadilokphopnop- paratrajathaniburiromudomrajaniwesmahasatharnamornphimarnavatarnsathit- sakkattiyavisanukamprasit.
Riddle: what is actually the longest word in the English language, and why? (joke)
The tongue twister I can think of is “TWISTING MY TONGUE AROUND YOUR CLIT!!” How would that be after a couple of HOURS? Think you or any of the other girls could do this?
