Words, Words, & More Words & Definitions Game!

Related Topics: Fun

This is my own idea so let's have fun...."Let the Games Begin!"

Rules: I will start with a word & I will give the first comment
so you can see how it is done. I give the definition to the
word give and give a new word for the next person. One
turn at a time, please. & wait until someone else gives a
new word.

Any word can be used, just play nice & remember we have
teenagers that play. Please..no politics here! I blog on the
political questions & blogs but come to the games for fun.

If you care to chit-chat with players & post pictures, feel
free to do so. I am a very outgoing person & like to
interact with other players ....I know some of you do too.

I will not block anyone unless it is absolutely necessary!
If I have a problem with anything, I'll send you a private
email on SH.

We will start with easy words, then as the game goes along,
we will have harder words....I am sure. So if you need a
dictionary...that is alright.

First Word: Happy

You!

    Floccinaucinihilipilification... the act or the habit of estimating as worthless, or no value or simply trivia.

    Did you know that floccinaucinihilipilification is the second longest word in the English language and the actual longest word ever to appear in a Hansard in the English House Of Commons. Now that is another little worthless tit bit that the word floccinaucinihilipilification brings to mind.

    But, it was very clever of you to come up with it Marianne!

    New Word: Gralloching

    Thank you, Joe.

    These longest words are technical and scientific word compositions (especially basing on Greek and/or Latin bases), namely chemical and medical terms, like pneumonoultramicroscopicsilic... said to be the longest word cited in a major dictionary.

    I got a funny one from a site for people learning German, but it is more a joke word basing on a Hottentot story for a good laugh:
    Hottentottenstottertrottelmut... (72, but rather 66 letters)

    You have to separate each word from this cumulation, beginning with:

    Attentäter = Assassin
    from (according to the story, he was caught in there but escaped)

    Lattengitter = a cage, resp. grid made with laths
    for catching
    Beutelratten = opossums

    (Kötter is the owner or resident of a small rural house in Northern Germany - this looks like an error)

    the Assassin murdered the
    Mutter = mother
    of a
    Hottentottenstottertrottel = stuttering Hottentot fool

    As already said, it is a joke composition for learning German and not part of official dictionaries.

    Have a great time.
