Word debate, self explanatory. You each post one word, and the voters decide which is best. It must be in the dictionary. Let's start!!

My word:

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

long word said to mean a lung disease caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust.

source: http://oxforddictionaries.com...

FYI its the longest word in the dictionary. http://en.wikipedia.org...

Use in a sentence:

My god, your Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is getting worse!

@16k, FYI pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis (btw, I can spell it out loud in 9 seconds ... I've memorized it) is actually just a longer version of silicosis, which is caused by inhalation of silica, especially that found in volcanic ash.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro used sources that were very easy to check, their word was also longer and the spelling was more complex. Con even furthered their argument with a sentence to use the word.
