Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness, I has it (not)

This one is for you, mysterious Googler.

In honour of whoever found my blog with the search phrase “word for fetish for long words”. The word you were looking for is sesquipedalian, literally meaning a foot and a half long.

Alternatively, the fear of long words is hippopotomonstrosesquipideliophobia.

Which is utterly fucking ridiculous.
