WORD OF THE WEEK

Hippopopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia: The fear of long words.


Pronounciation: Hi-poh-po-toh-mon-stroh-ses-kwee-peh-dah-leejoh-foh-beeja


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 ;)


Love,

Sarah
