Longest English words! πŸ˜€ Can you pronounce them?

Did you know that the longest English word consists of 189,819 letters!! It was mind blowing to know that actually. But who cares I guess nobody uses it unless if you are a chemist πŸ‘¨β€πŸ”¬ πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬ Surprisingly I found someone who uploaded a video on YouTube pronouncing it. It lasts for more than an hour! πŸ˜…

And I have no clue if that was even the correct pronunciation. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

And the second longest consists of 1,909 letters and it is the longest published word in the English language.

There is an unexplained gab here, because the third longest one consists of 182 letters. And according to Wikipedia, it is the longest word coined by a major author, and it is the longest word ever to appear in literature. And it was translated from Greek. And the word is:

Lopadotemachoselachogaleokranioleipsanodrimhypotrimmatosilphioparaomelitokatakechymenokichlepikossyphophattoperisteralektryonoptekephalliokigklopeleiolagoiosiraiobaphetraganopterygon
