    Although there are a dispute over which word is the longest word in English, it is believed that the following word is the longest word in English that actually has a meaning, as opposed to other long words that were formed just for the purpose of being long.

    the word is: Antidisestablishmentarianism

    and it is a political philosophy that is opposed to the separation of church and state.. If you break the word down, you will see that it contains six English morphemes, which are: anti (which means against) .. dis (which is a negation marker) .. establish (the verb to establish) .. ment .. (the suffix to make the noun 'establishment') .. arian (suffix to indicate the person who does the act) .. and ism (the suffix to make the whole thing a noun)

    well, procrestination is not that long, but it's in the league

    Zeenah, as I said, there might words as long as the one I mentioned (such as in Medicine) but they're not meaningful in the sense of being used outside the Medicine field.

    my regards

    dear Rami
    I tried to look that word up, but I didn't find it

    but even if it is right as spelled, it still equals
    to the same length of the word I provided haha

    thanx Rami
