Clearly not the longest word

Even if there are other other words longer than Antidisestablishmentarianism shouldn't the word Antidisestablishmentarianistic exist? (talk) 06:55, 29 April 2009 (UTC)Anthony[reply]

Then maybe Antidisestablishmentarianistical, or Antidisestablishmentarianistically, as in the sentence "The man antidisestablishmentarianistically protested against the church."? (talk) 07:04, 29 April 2009 (UTC)Anthony[reply]

pseudoantidisestablishmentarianism is also longer. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:43, 25 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]

And I managed to include 'pseudoantidisestablishmentarianism' legitimately in a recent article in Law & Justice as a description of Gordon Brown's attitude to establishment: in his guts, he'd probably like to disestablish the C of E (he is, afer all, a Scot) but he can't very well admit to that in public. Incidentally, you can sing it to the tune of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Kranf (talk) 14:53, 29 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]

okay ya'll asked for it Antineocontrapseudocontraneocontrapseudocontraneocontrapseudocontraneocontrapseudocontraneoantidisestablishmentarianists

The difference is that most people can memorise "antidisestablishmentarianism" quite easily, but I would think the word above was probably cut and pasted from elsewhere.--MacRusgail 16:47, 18 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
you just added contra-pseudo to the beginning. that's like having a dream, in which you have a dream, and in that dream you have a dream, in which you dream of dreaming about a dream about dreams, ect. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:42, 22 November 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Agreed, u added antineo, then contrapseudo, then contraneo, then contrapseudo again, then contraneo again. THATS CHEATING!! (talk) 20:25, 30 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]

it is technically still a new word ...though it would be considered to be coined... also antidisestablishmentairanism is considered to be the longest non-coined and non-technicalk word in the english language. pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is the longest technical and Floccinaucinihilipilifications is the longest coined word.

Couldn't it be argued that "antidisestablishmentarianistic" is technically longer, even though it's just a variation of the word? SweetNightmares (talk) 06:42, 22 October 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Story my teacher told me! Hollow?

My teacher shared a story with me about him in his younger years. (Long story short) Him and his friends were looking for Sasquatch and ended up running away from a small man with a pointy head, and climbing inside a hallow bald cypress! The hole was big enough to hold him and his four other friends (big guys mind you)! He told our class some times an old bald cypress can develop a hallow inside and he had several of these hallow trees every where. I'm fortunate enough to go on an ecology trip where I get to see some next month!!!! SO EXCITED! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)8:06 pm, 10 October 2012, Wednesday (6 years, 3 months, 6 days ago) (UTC−4)

This page is for questions about how to use Wikipedia, not for discussing mortgages. -- Hoary (talk) 13:32, 16 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Jchip48: Looks like you (and your mom) need a legal help. But WIKIPEDIA DOES NOT GIVE LEGAL OPINIONS. Turn to a professionalist. --CiaPan (talk) 15:25, 16 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

OK, this reply is really late, but you seem to have misunderstood the talk page to be a place to talk to Rajamouli. Wikipedia does not represent S.S. Rajamouli, nor do we have any affiliation with him. This applies to all articles. You are welcome to improve Wikipedia if you wish to. Thanks, King Prithviraj II (talk) 17:05, 10 December 2017 (UTC)[reply]
