Antihypersyllabicsesquipedalian Revisited

Back in 2004 I posted about the word “antihypersyllabicsesquipedalian” which means, roughly, “a person who hates long words”. I was advocating that the word needed to be used a lot more than it is. Back at that time, a Google search would not even return a single result. That needed to be changed.

Following the link from the thumbnail above you will get to the page where I am now tracking the success (or failure) of my campaign to popularize the word.

The word is not doing as well as I would like. So once again I appeal to all my readers… please use this word as often as possible, both in daily conversation and on the web.

Thank you.
