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

synonym: sesquippedaliophobia 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.

C'mon you know it's true!
Person who coined the term: So what's her deal?
Colleague: Oh, she's afraid of long words. Do we even have a word for that?
Person who coined the term: You know what we should call it? Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia!
Colleague: That's just wrong.
