A man has attempted to pronounce the longest word in the world, which consists of 189,819 letters and takes about 213 minutes to pronounce.
According to Geekologie.com, the word - which is actually the name of a giant protein called Titin - begins with "Methio," ends with "leucine," and has a total of 189,819 letters, the Huffington Post reported.
Reading it in one shot can make the average person's eyes bleary, but Dmitry Golubovskiy decided to go one better and recite the entire word on video, a process that lasts exactly 3:33:23.
There's a reason why the protein's name had to be so large - and, luckily, it's short. Proteins are usually named by mashing-up the names of the chemicals making them, NewsFixNow.com revealed.
Since Titin is the largest protein ever discovered, its name had to be equally as large.
Although it qualifies as the largest word in English, it is not found in the dictionary.
