Ha ha ha.
So you schmucks think the above word doesn’t exist and we’re gin-ned up.
True, we’re gin-ned up but not so much as to take leave of our senses.
As we were desultorily browsing through our well-thumbed copy of Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase & Fable (18th Edition) a short while ago, we stumbled upon Floccinaucinihilipilification (p.507).
The word means ‘the action or practice of estimating something as worthless,’ according to Brewer’s.
Now we’ve got to find a way to work this verbal grotesquerie into one of our posts. 😉
Strangely, Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (11th Edition) doesn’t list the word.
SI reader Kreacher writes in (via Facebook) to tell us that the Oxford dictionary lists the word.
