The longest word in English contains 1,89.819 letters. It is the chemical name of titin, which is the largest known protein. This word is disputed one and has not been included in dictionary (methionyl---- sootherleucine).                                                                                                                  Pneumoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoicconiosis is the longest word found in a major dictionary. It is a technical word, in fact has been coined to describe a disease related to vocanoic eruption.                                                                                                                                                    Another major technical word  is pseudopseudohypoparathyroiddism, which is again a disease.    However, floccinaucinihilipilification is the widely accepted nontechnical word found in major dictionaries. Honorificabilitudinitatibus is the longest word Shakespeare used in his play Love’s Labour Lost.
