Hippopopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia: The fear of long words.
Sentence: When Anne told her teacher that she had hippopopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, the teacher looked puzzled.
Yes, it a real thing!
It's ironic, isn't it? While you're telling people you're afraid of big words, you have to do it using an extremely big word! I am not hippopopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobic- in fact, I love big words. I find them amusing!
Do I also love spending hours learning how to pronounce them?
Are you hippopopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobic?
Until next week...
Stay Curious ;)
