There are three longest words in Dictionary and there meaning

English is an odd and remarkable language. We "write", we can be right", and we perform a "rite". But even more interesting than the fact of our language are the lengthy and rarely used words hidden among our dictionaries.

  2. have sustained usage
  3. Have meaningful usage
