Scripps, Here We Come!

Paul from Watertown, MA and a listener on WGBH wants to know,

We just re-listend to a show from season 9 where one of the bluffing words was “recumbentibus.” What is the longest word that you’ve used?

It’s a three-way tie for longest bluffing word we’ve ever used; each has 14 letters:
castrametation
omphaloskepsis
scobberlotcher

And “recumbentibus” is just one of six 13-letter words we’ve used:

deipnosophist
embranglement
pandiculation
recumbentibus
ticdouloureux
vaccimulgence

Do you have a double-digit letter word you think can stump our panelists? Send us your bluffs, rounds, and factoids using our “Got a Good One?” page!
