There’s a mouthful. Floccinaucinihilipilification. It means, according to Dictionary.com, “the estimation of something as valueless.” It’s one of the longest words in the English language. It’s a good thing I don’t often appraise property as valueless- I’d hate to have to pronounce the word in court. I’d have to play this link instead: Dictionary.com audio. Thanks to my wife, Susan Snowdon, for her alert word-sleuthing.
