floccinaucinihilipilification ? I chose the same Word for the same contest some months ago !!! Not many entries, by the way, in my case .. Such a difficult w ord and don �t even remember the real meaning , haha . I �ll have a try , here I go : Flo : Short form of my name ( Flori , everybody knows that in this site ! ;)) CCI : /si/ (pronounced like that is "yes" in Spanish) Still haven�t finished ...; Nau : it can be the pronunciation of the negative "no" by some Spaniards; Cin : /sin/means "without" in Spanish ; hilip: Sounds like a Word in Spanish meaning "stupid" ; -ification: suffix meaning "process "(getting a quality ) So that "floccinaucinihilipilification" can be the process in which Flori is struggling whether to be stupid or not by posting such a nonsense !!! That�s all , folks !!!
