Archive for the ‘Longest Word’ Category

The nineteenth volume of The Blah Story by Nigel Tomm was published in 2008. In The Blah Story, Volume 19 the longest sentence in the world ends. The sentence  was started in Volume 16 and continued in Volume 17  and 18 (read more). Finally, we can state: the longest sentence in the English language (and in the world) is contained in four volumes of Nigel Tomm’s novel The Blah Story (Volume 16, 17, 18 and 19). The sentence contains 2,403,109 words; 15,403,732 characters (with spaces); 3,248 pages.

Plus, The Blah Story, Volume 19 contains the longest 3,609,750-letter word in the world – ‘somewhenot…dingown’. The word means the current day or date between real and imaginable today.

The 3.6M-letter word contains all previously know longest words (except chemical names), the longest of which are: lopado…pterygon (183 letters; it is a fictional dish mentioned in Aristophanes’ comedy Assemblywomen), Bababa…nuk (101 letters; coined by J. Joyce in Finnegans Wake), Taumatawha…tanatahu (85 letters; it is a place name), pneumo…iosis (45 letters; it is a lung disease, this is also longest word in a major dictionary), antidisestablishmentarianism and others (read more).

Corollary. The longest sentence contains the longest word, both of them belong to Nigel Tomm and both are published in the longest novel – The Blah Story.

Book statistics: The Blah Story, Volume 19 contains 11 words; 3,609,796 characters (with spaces); 812 pages.
