Oh, just you wait!!

Amelia Slawsby mailed me this link to the Huffington Post's coverage of  some of the longest words in English.  Read 'em and weep! Weep for joy, that is, that most of them never crossed our mind as we composed prior years' word lists.

Next time is a new time...and you can count on seeing some more of these, even if only for comic relief. I may have to retire hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian, now that Greg Kahoun caught me spelling it wrong in last year's list...but we still have 10 others.

Click on the Huffington Post link and enjoy their clever photographs and concise definitions. I notice there are no pronunciation guides. Hmmm.

Thanks, Amelia, for the fun read!
