English is an odd and unique language. We "write," we can be "right," and we perform a "rite." But even more interesting than the inconsistencies of our language are the lengthy and seldom used words hidden among our dictionaries.

- Have widespread usage
- Have sustained usage
- Have meaningful usage
By that definition, here are the 3 longest words in the English dictionary.
