Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis


This word is in fact an obscure term ostensibly referring to a lung disease caused by silica dust.

My goodness! Imagine Marry Poppins replacing her Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious into Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis or if the two words were actually combined to be a theme in the Mary Poppins classic movie! Or I wonder how you'd feel if you had a check-up and your doctor suddenly announces that you are suffering from Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. Wouldn't you die first trying to prounounce your disease after you come home and have your family asking what the findings were? Or having to repeat the said word to every person who asked you about your health condition? What if our names was something like that to some degree? Oh my! Will my name then be Goddessissexygwennieskinsdivineohsis?

I just happened to come across your journal through Desert Blu's place and I've enjoyed my visit here. I happen to be a word lover so this post was particularly interesting, funny too. :)
Have a great weekend!
