Roy you did better than me. I figured it was a lung disease of some sort since parts of the word dealt with pneumon-ultra microscopic-silli Then I hit the volcano, and thought what the heck???? So I looked it up

Ya just have to mix the words up to make sense Donna. Most medical terminology is based on latin which has a different sentence structure. Think of Igpay Atinlay.

It helps that I work in a field where Silicosis is a reality.

Wink Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis

It is on Wikipedia:

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

However, they spell it with a c instead of a k.

It is a fancy word for silicosis. Sort of a black lung disease of hard rock miners.

I learned it in my youth just because of the uniqueness of it.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.
