The Longest Word in the English Language

This has nothing to do with celebrity, but it’s my blog and I found it interesting. The longest word in the English language is not supercalifragilisticexpialidocious as, most likely, many of you may have previously thought…as I did, mainly because I hadn’t give it much thought. But, my daughter brought it to my attention and I found it ridiculously interesting. It is ridiculously interesting because it’s ridiculously long.

There is some discrepancy that exists concerning the actual spelling of the word that has it fluctuating between 1,909 and 1,825 letters. It’s a scientific term for Tryptophan synthetase, which is a protein containing 267 amino acids.  This prompts me to ask the obvious question.  Why wouldn’t Tryptophan synthetase work?  I mean, that sounds like a perfect scientific term to me.  But, I digress.  Here is the longest word in the English language.
