Two words that contains millions of letters?
Also 'The Blah Story, Volume 10' encloses the world's longest word which
contains 2,087,214 letters. The ultra long word was created using very
simple algorithm. Nigel Tomm joyfully explains an algorithm of building
his extra size word: "Fuse separate words together no matter how cool
you think they look singly."
To clarify the algorithm lets find out how the first 25 characters of the word are created.
Firstly, Nigel Tomm takes a word "baby." The word "baby" has the
last letter "y," so Tomm adds to the word "baby" a word which has the
first letter "y," he chooses a word "you," and gets the word "babyou."
Symbolically it can be written
New word "babyou" has the last letter is "u," so Tomm must add a
word which begins with a letter "u," and he chooses "ubiquitous."
Now, he gets a new word "babyoubiquitous." Symbolically it could be written as
Applying this algorithm one more time we get:
and so on. This algorithm was applied to get the word which is 2,087,214 letters long and occupies 728 pages.
Other world's longest words are: methionylthreonylthreonyl...isoleucine (189,819 letters;
it is largest known protein), lopado...pterygon (183 letters; it is a
fictional dish mentioned in Aristophanes' comedy 'Assemblywomen'),
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
