    Welsh Sign Posts

    Officials in Wales mistakenly erected a road sign that read "I am not in the office at the moment" in Welsh after a translation mix-up.

    shocking, how about this for the longest English no-technical word.

    Floccinaucinihilipilification
    With 29 letters and 12 syllables, it is the longest non-technical word in the first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), which presents it as "enumerated in a well-known rule from the Eton Latin Grammar." The OED dates its first use in literature at 1741 in William Shenstone's Works in Prose and Verse: "I loved him for nothing so much as his flocci-nauci-nihili-pili-fication of money." In recent years, the word has been used in many scholarly articles in philosophy.

    The Oxford English Dictionary contains pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism (30 letters).

    Balderdash . . .

    the OED is full of spelling mistakes, as is Cambridge dictionary.
