This rare word, I mean bird appeared today:

A Rare Bird

It is a Hilipil for short.  It comes from the land of imagination.

Floccinaucinihilipilification is a noun and one of the LONGEST words in the English language.

Pronounced as flok-sub-naw-sub-nahy-hil-uh-pil-uh-fi-KEY-shuh

It means the estimation of something as valueless, rare.

Now you can dazzle all your friends with this unusual word.  I challenge you to  try saying it three times really fast!   🙂

Happy Creating!

    • Thanks Sydney! I love looking at the word of the day! Have you ever taken a word and made a silly animal out of it? It’s loads of fun! I like to use an old dictionary and randomly choose a word. Then I just tear out a shape and build from that. Sometimes the word in the shape will help me with the animal. Or I will start with a word of the day and make up a bird from it. Really fun! 😊
