I study chemistry, so I completely understand why the word is so long. You can't just shorten it, that is why they have nicknames. Proteins are
really, really long chains, so it has long name. Its also called Titin.
Finnish is really full of these monster words, but its hard to find longest words, as some words don't exist in reality, they are just crazy words
the writers have invented, as its possible in finnish language to smash words together.
This word actually exists:
Lentokonesuihkuturbiinimoottoriapumekaanikkoaliupseerioppilas. (61 characters)
Means: "aeroplane jet turbine motor assistant mechanic, non-commissioned officer, in training"
Then there is this monster word, invented by writer Artturi Kannisto:
"kumarreksituteskenteleentuvaisehkollaismaisekkuudellisenneskenteluttelemattomammuuksissansakaankopahan" (102 characters) (Sadly this doesn't mean
anything, I can't even pronounce it)
The official longest word in Finnish according to Guiness Book of Records:
"epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydellänsäkäänköhän" (49 characters)
"I wonder if – even with his/her quality of not having been made unsystematized"
