What's the longest word you can think of which doesn't repeat any letters?

Asked by ucme (38626 points ) October 24th, 2010

Just a bit of word fun. Try to abstain from utilising search engines if you can. Much more impressive, not to say rewarding if you come up with your own. Nothing more to add really, other than good luck. May the longest valid word win!

The English spelling neighbours gives us our first ten. I’m sure that can be beat however.

@noelleptc Well being English, I should know that really.

formidable

first ten for the u.s. america…fuck yeah

ucme's avatar

@Blondesjon An excellent offering. Patriotism an added bonus. Can’t help thinking that word is best said with a French accent though.

Oooh! sh$%, d*%$, didn’t read the details thoroughly. I’ll take my 10 lashings with a wet noodle

AmWiser's avatar

Hey! @BoBo1946 was about to cheat too. Yeah, Bo, I’m calling you out XD!

BoBo1946's avatar

@AmWiser Loll.. you would be correct !

AmWiser's avatar

@absalom cannot use my cheat word. It’s not fair.

BoBo1946's avatar

Oh, did not read the details….seriously! My bad!

ucme's avatar

@AmWiser A flimsy excuse & no mistake! Why @BoBo1946 is a serial cheater. Makes no attempt to hide it, on & off the golf course. He’s a bounder & a cad I tell you! XD

BoBo1946's avatar

opening….. you said TRY @ucme ! loll

BoBo1946's avatar

Lmao… serial cheater!!!!!!!!!!

ucme's avatar

Hey it’s all good. All done in good fun. Even if some of us chose underhand tactics! :¬)

BoBo1946's avatar

loll….ahhh me!

BoBo1946's avatar

Must be the English water!!!!

@AmWiser

I didn’t use your word. I used my word. ‘Uncopywrightable’ and ‘uncopywrightables’ are completely different.

I also abstained from using a search engine. Don’t ask me how.

Shamelssly cheating, this website yields the following:

Dermatoglyphics, misconjugatedly, and uncopyrightable, each fifteen letters long, are the longest English words in which no letter appears more than once. Fourteen letter words with this property are ambidextrously, benzhydroxamic, hydromagnetics, hydropneumatic, pseudomythical, schizotrypanum, sulphogermanic, troublemakings, undiscoverably, and vesiculography.

If this is right, then @AmWiser is the clear winner!

AmWiser's avatar

Yep! Like @BoBo1946 said, you said…......try.
And now he’s blaming it on the English water.
Okay @absalom my apoligies. You win.

Blondesjon's avatar

Sobs uncontrollably!! Wahhhh, my game got all mixed up & turned upside down & sideways & inside out & stuff. Now i’m going to have to throw my toys out the pram, stamp my feet & scream the bloody walls down….....or go for a beer. Haven’t decided yet :¬(

AmWiser's avatar

Awww @ucme you’ll get over it. You always make up good games to play. So go and nurse a beer and come back better and more funner. lol!
