A Conversation for Floccinaucinihilipilification
GTBacchus Started conversation Jul 31, 2001
The following long word was coined by myself an a friend following a silly discussion of silly phobias:
Nominophobiolatinoprolicophobia - n. the fear of long latin phobia names.
It seems to have Floccinaucinihilipilification beat by 2 letters, but it's not recognized in any dictionary that I'm aware of.
The floccinaucinihilipilification of 'nominophobiolatinoprolicophobia' by lexicographers has got me down .

A nice thing, btw, about 'nominophobiolatinoprolicophobia is that it's dactylic!
If anyone is frightened by that fact, they may suffer from nominophobiodactylolatinoprolicophobia, but don't mention it to them.
