    electroencephalograph - this is the longest word i've come across from Psychology
    Yea but that's just a bunch of greek suffixes and prefixes mushed together.

    Hawaiian words normally have like 10+ letters and the word "sesquipedalian." It's just unnecessary....especially for what it means...

    German compound words are ridiculously long for example :-

    Donaudampfschifffahrtsgesellscha ftskapitaenswitwe, meaning the "widow of a Danube steamboat company captain".

    or

    Kraftfahrzeughaftpflichtversiche rung, meaning "automobile liability insurance".
