  • I thought it was rare to find a 5 or 6 syllable word


    and it is

    but here is (at this point) the only 7 syllable word I know of:

    Constitutionality


    quite an apropos word these days, eh? 

    as  in: Why is so much in this country that is done in govt...

    well, we question its constitutionality?

    19 is the record I guess, followed by two 14s, a 12, and a number of 11s.

  • Nadir, I stand corrected. I only post once in a blue moon, and too hastily..thanks! I'm dumb..    ::)

    Graceseeker, I have had that argument before. I agree! I had to look it up. It is in the dictionary. Dictionary.com if you will...

    Good one! Not sure where I picked up this one..
    . Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him ...(Oh, man, this is so bad, it's good)... A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.
