    *I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.
    *That myth is more potent than history.
    *That dreams are more powerful than facts.
    *That hope always triumphs over experience.
    *That laughter is the only cure for grief.
    *And I believe that love is stronger than death.

    In what language? English only? because there are words 50 characters long in other languages. I saw one 23 characters long in Dutch.

                Here is the longest word you were looking for
                ADCOMSUBORDCOMPHIBSPAC
                It is a Navy term standing for Administrative Command, Amphibious Forces, Pacific Fleet Subordinate Command

                    The answer to your question is:

                    RHYTHMS : As this is a commonly used word.

                    But these additional words appear in Webster:
                    SYMPHYSY, NYMPHLY, GYPSYRY, and GYPSYFY.

                    The Oxford English Dictionary has
                    TWYNDYLLYNG(S).

                    And WPPWRMWSTE (also in Oxford) goes nine letters without a vowel.

                    GLYCYRRHIZIN (a constituent of licorice)

                    Some other trivia for you folks, before MystryGal asks for them in another thread:

                    The longest word in English:

                    1. PNEUMONOULTRAMICROSCOPICSILICOVOLCANOCONIOSIS (45 letters; a lung disease caused by breathing in certain particles) is the longest word in any English-language dictionary. (It is also spelled -koniosis.)

                    2. SMILES is supposed to be the longest word in the dictionary because "there's a mile between the two S's." I may also point out that adding one letter to SMILE adds two syllables (in forming SIMILE).

                    The last I checked "O" was considered a vowel. In any case, 'abbreviations', are not generally considered as 'words'. http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/hehe.gif

                    Nice try, though, and pretty informative


                    Adios!

                            Mystry gal, "crwth" is a 14th century english word meaning "crowd"!

                            YoungBrat, that is not longest word in english. There is one that has 60+ letters.

                            ------------------
                            *V~V~V*He came, He saw, He conquered*V~V~V*

                              "pneumonoultramicroscopicsiliconovolcanoconios is"

                              Yes that's the longest word in English Language. It came in the newspaper 4 years ago when I was in Dubai.
                              It's a term used for a disease caused in the respiratory system by some specific dust particles.

                              I hope I have spelt it right!!
