    To have some fun or to waste your time depending on how you see it, I thought I would start a thread on words that are floccinaucinihilipilification. Think how fun it will be to confuse your friends with obscure and useless words.

    The word floccinaucinihilipilification means the act or instance of judging something to be worthless or trivial. Apparently the way people feel about this thread. :ninja:
     
  3. Acknowledged...
     
  4. I have trouble getting my head around that idea. How can a 'word' be floccinaucinihilipilification? An act or an incident may illustrate floccinaucinihilipilification.

    I have trouble just getting my head around all those letters. But it is a word, it's a verb.

    Words that long don't scare me anymore since I learned German.

    It's times like these that make me appreciate the simplicity of the f word.

    Thanks brother. Been busy. Ramping up for a gig and switched over to my summer gig.
     
  11. It's an abstract noun, not a verb. Floccinaucinihilipilificate, OTOH, is a verb. Although given the etymology of 'floccinaucinihilipilification', it's probably worthless trying to analyze it.
