So I was just talking with some people over MSN and I found out that the longest Icelandic word is FIFTY letters long!!!

Word:
Hellishei?arvegavinnuverkamannaverkf?rageymslusk˙r
Meaning:
Its a small house in which a worker can store his tools while working on a road

The longest croatian is only 22 letters to my knowledge :not_ok:
Word:
Prijestolonaslijednica
Meaning:
The woman which will inherit the throne after the king/queen dies

So, let's hear what you've got!

French: Anticonstitutionellement.

Don't ask the meaning... I'm too lazy to check and translate it...

hottentottententententoonstelling is the longest one I know
now only is it long, its also very difficult to pronounce without leaving out some letters while pronouncing it.
It means: exposition about the tents of the Hottentots

I read on the back of a lollie packet that a german person has a last name that is about 500 letters long.
Also chemicals have long names, theres one with 150 letters or something you can find the longest in the guiness book of records.

THIS IS ALL



The topic is about the longest WORLD in your language....
In Norwegian that would be Jorden / Verden, both meaning the world :bleh:

Well, this tool shed is located on this certain place (Hellishei?i).
We also have another simple word for a tool shed: Verkf?rageymsla / Verkf?rageymslusk˙r.

Hellishei?arvegavinnuverkamannaverkf?rageymslusk˙r is less common.
I wonder why...
