14 of the Longest Words in English And Their Meanings.

This article talks about really long English words. But don’t expect to find the absolute longest one here. That word would take up about fifty-seven pages, and it’s the name of a protein called titin found in humans. The full name has a whopping 189,819 letters! Most dictionaries don’t include this word and many other super long ones. It’s because dictionaries have limited space, and most people don’t need to know these super technical words. But hey, there are still plenty of other long words worth checking out in dictionaries. Let’s take a moment to admire some of them.
