floccinaucinihilipilification

The action or habit of estimating as worthless.

At one letter longer than antidisestablishmentarianism (Gregor's Word of the Week for 2000-02-26), 'floccinaucinihilipilification' claims the title for the longest word in English. This word is not present in many dictionaries, but can be found in the Oxford English Dictionary (OED).
