See if you can pronounce the word

Will you take up the challenge and try to say the longest word in the world out loud? Don’t worry, you’ll be fine! You only need 3 hours and 33 minutes to say it.
There is no doubt that our language is particularly rich in words that are difficult to pronounce. The first example from the edge can be a word consisting of 32 letters – Constantinople. If you managed to pronounce this word out loud without any problem, try this one, which has 189,819 characters*.
What does a word of a few thousandths actually mean? It’s the full chemical name for tin – a long, fibrous protein found in certain muscle tissues in vertebrates. Titin is also the largest protein we know.
Wait, wait, wait, is this really the longest word in the world?
And yes and no. It exists as a chemical name, but it does not appear in any dictionary – most likely this one word should be published in a separate copy. Many people question whether this is a word at all.
In the Guinness Book of Records, the longest word in the world is Sanskrit (the literary languages of ancient and medieval India). Sanskrit allows you to combine words of any length, and so the longest word is considered to be a “word” written in 195 characters of this language. However, the Latin translation already takes up 428 characters and describes the appearance of the Kanci region in India.
