Ironically, the fear of long words.
"sesquippedalio" relates to long words
"phobia" is an irrational fear
"hippopoto" and "monstro" (short for hippopotamus and monster) exaggerate the length of the word
means exactly the same thing
alt spellings: "pedalio" instead of "ppedalio"
guy: I have hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia. *(guy starts hyperventilating)*
A word someone made up to screw with people who are diagnosed with a fear
of long words.

Person who coined the term: You know what we should call it? Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia!
Colleague: That's just wrong.
The fear of long words - that's ironic.
