    I have searched not long but a word that seems to be longer is "pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis"


    As well I found it at
    the definition is
    The longest word in any of the major English language dictionaries is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, a 45-letter word which refers to a lung disease contracted from the inhalation of very fine silicious particles. Research has discovered that this word was originally intended as a hoax. It has since been used in a close approximation of its originally intended meaning, lending at least some degree of validity to its claim.
