    Longest English word spelled alphabetically?

    Just been told this:

    Almost is the longest word in the English language with all the letters in alphabetical order.

    Is that true?

    I'm sure i remember hearing a while ago it was a different word, but cant remember what that word was?

    Apparently there's 14 words that are 6 letters long and in alphabetical order:

    abdest acknow adipsy agnosy almost befist behint beknow bijoux dehors dehort deinos dimpsy ghosty

    But the longest is Aegilops as dave_lunt2 says.

    Actually, theres 2 more 6 letter words:

    biopsy and chintz
