    Longest Russian Word

    Greetings
    In English, the longest word is Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. What's the longest word in Russian?

    And yes, I spelt that from memory.
    Я знаю

    Вилкою

    The longest Russian word is probably a name of chemical formula/
    For example диэтилхлоридтринатрийфосф ат

    I know the longest English word (310 letters) is
    "ornicopytheobiblopsychocrystarroscioaerogene
    thliometeoroaustrohieroanthropoicichthyopyrosid
    erochpnomyoalectryoophiobotanopegohydrorhab
    docrithoaleuroalphitohalomolybdoclerobeloaxinoco
    scinodactyliogeolithopessopscphocatoptrotephraoe
    irochiroomychodactyloarithstichooxogeloscogastrog
    yrocerobletonooenoscapulinaniac"

    It means "a deluded human who practices divination or forecasting". And yes, I spelt taht from memory.

    P.S. Sorry for such division, it's a bit long.
