Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

I think 'honorificabilitudinitatibus' deserves to be mentioned Smile It's from Shakespeare and although I think it's Latin, my former English teacher says it's English.

However, words don't have to be long to be difficult...

PS. The Shakespeare word means 'the state of being able to achieve honours'

There was a listing for a word which denotes an armchair ormanemt which was on the order of a hundred characters long.

As to molecule names... kindly don't confuse such with what we call words. One could just as well consider the geneome a workd and that would go on for miles.

I thought it was "smiles" because there is a "mile" in between the two s's. Or something like that.

Oh yeah, I could've sworn it was "He Cried" that must have been in another version of the bible or I may just be crazy boy.

The alphabet is pronounced "Ab'-ca-def-gie-jik'-kle-mi-nop-cur-stoov'-you-ix-yiz", and it comes from a Sesame Street song. Smile
