One of the longest word in the world!


Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch


This is the name of a village and community on the island of Anglesey in Wales. Which means to say that this is actually the name of a village in United Kingdom!

Learnt something new today?

Well, if you do not believe me, here is what I did when I first saw this word: Check it with Wikipedia!

Wow. That's shocking. I always thought the longest word was Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. At least Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is pronouncable. Really.
