I accept the rules.

My word is:
Zenzizenzizenzic

Definition:
Zenzizenzizenzic is an obsolete form of mathematical notation representing the eighth power of a number (that is, the zenzizenzizenzic of a number x is the power x8), dating from a time when powers were written out in words rather than as superscript numbers.

I'm sorry, I wanted to add the sources, but I posted it prematurely. Voters have the right not to take it into account, their will.

Ok. Except it is bad conduct to continue a debate in the comments.

Reasons for voting decision: Con used the only source. Pro wins though because I'm tired of the "haha my word is longer" wins. I mean really, how cheap is that? Pro had a cool word that was interesting to learn.

Reasons for voting decision: The word was outrageously unrealistic but had a source . The Pro had no sources to support his word and his word is also unrealistic.. Win by Con for providing a source..
