Re:

well, it would be hard for me to tell you how to pronounce it since you can't hear me right now! ;)

Google is your friend. I'll tell you what it means later. Right now I'm having fun with people's responses. :)

Re:

I could, but I don't know all the special characters.

Anyway, Jex spilled the beans. So...

sesquipedalophobia is an irrational fear of long words.

Re:
