supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?

What does it mean you may wonder, the meaning is:

From the song:

A word from the Disney film production of the book Mary Poppins describing any quality that is so indescribable that you have no real word to say it with

"It's Supercalafragilisticexpialidocious, even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious, if you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Multiple mispellings refer to the correctly spelled word "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" - a nonsense word uttered by the character, Mary Poppins in the 1964 movie of the same name. The Walt Disney production of the film, starring Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins, featured the word in a song that tells how you can use it to impress others or as an exclamation when you don't know what to say. (The movie, Mary Poppins, was based on the book of the same title, written by P L Travers in 1934.)

Or doyou think that it is a real word with meaning.

Personally i don't because there is no actual meanig for the word expept for the movies point of veiw.

Sure. Maybe the word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious was created by film makers and writers, but that only contributes more to the uniqueness of the word itself. All words had to have a start somewhere, right? Society today considers all things that are defined in the English dictionary as "words". But what is a word? It is only a blend of sounds we use to describe something. How can it get more complicated than that? Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is the same way. It is just a blend of wierd sounds and letters to create a saying, but it IS in the English dictionary being defined as: adjective
(used as a nonsense word by children to express approval or to represent the longest word in English.)
