As you can see, I'm participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge, which means I'll be putting a post up every day during the month of April that corresponds to each letter of the alphabet. And since I've been extremely lax of late in posting anything, I figure this is a great way to get back into the swing of things.
For the challenge, I've decided on a theme revolving around words in the English language. Which brings us to today's word - Antidisestablishmentarianism.
It's the longest word in the English language and yet it's made up of a whole bunch of prefixes and suffixes. The root is establish, everything else is a prefix or a suffix. The definition is:
Or in laymen's terms, it means to be against the separation of church and state. I love this word, partly because it's so long but partly because you have to work your way through it to really understand what it means. It's a thinker's word, and I'm always in favor of people thinking more. Plus I did a research paper on this word in high school so it's always been a word I think of when I think of the letter A.
What other A words can you think of like this?
