Word-a-Day

Post by Daniel on 24th March 2010, 00:22

Here's how it works - I will post a word. You will look up that word's meaning. The first person to post the correct definition posts the next word and so on. The only rule is that the word has to be as strange as possible.

Ready?

First word is:

Anatidaephobia

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, "a factitious word alleged to mean 'a lung disease caused by the inhalation of very fine silica dust, causing inflammation in the lungs.'" A condition meeting the word's definition is normally called silicosis.
