Floccinaucinihilipilification! You probably read it wrong. I, personally, did not even try to read it until I googled and found the actual way to pronounce the word. This 29 lettered word literally means the action or habit of estimating something as worthless.
My new book, THE PARADOXICAL PRIME MINISTER, is more than just a 400-page exercise in floccinaucinihilipilification. Pre-order it to find out why!https://t.co/yHuCh2GZDM

Maybe Shashi Tharoor is himself a dictionary. He is famous among Twitterati for using exotic words that confuse, yet amaze the readers. This man’s vocabulary is beyond comparison with any other celebrity or politician we have, today in India. And even across borders, Tharoor can compete with his language skills. Not just language, his deep knowledge in many areas has even been a subject for debate globally. We have seen that when Shashi Tharoor gave his speech about the economic toll that British rule took on India at the Oxford Union.
