A Conversation for Floccinaucinihilipilification

Long words

Post 1


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 smiley - blue.

A nice thing, btw, about 'nominophobiolatinoprolicophobia is that it's dactylic! smiley - wow

If anyone is frightened by that fact, they may suffer from nominophobiodactylolatinoprolicophobia, but don't mention it to them.
