Just a short wee thing today, as it’s late and I had a long day full of stuff and chatting and not-research time. But!

Today I learned that the longest place name in the world is not Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (58 letters) in Wales, but Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu (85 letters) in New Zealand.

The longest place name in Canada is Pekwachnamaykoskwaskwaypinwanik in Manitoba, a mere 31 letters. Slightly disappointing.

One Thought on “Spellcheck.

  1. They are all supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
