Longer than the longest!

There are some words that have always perforated my memory. I always try to memorize them, but, I forget them too easily.

In his play Assemblywomen (Ecclesiazousae), the ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes created the word (... last but one) of 183 letters.

I think the only way to make a word stick is to make it useful in some way; to call it up and make it your own. I try very hard in my teaching to get my students to sit up and take notice of new words. Unfortunately, it falls on deaf ears, I think. Most of what I read of theirs is so bland. We've no school today due to icy road conditions, tomorrow I'll pose this question to all of them.

@gael lynch: Thanks for leaving your mind here. The same thing happens with me also. Forgive ice, please.
