Longest word in the world

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis! Wow!! This is the longest word that i have ever read in my life and the longest word in the english dictionary. It's a lung disease also known as "black lung" caused by breathing in fine silica dust found inside dead volcanoes. The disease causes the person to cough up black phlegm and blood.
