Is there such a word?
I don't mean 'onomatopoeia'...
For example, 'sesquipedlian'.
Welcome to the forum, QC
Erm ... not entirely sure what you're asking. Is it: Sesquipedalian is a multisyllabic word meaning multisyllabic? Is there a name for that kind of word?
Yes, that's right. Polysyllabic, or simply a very long word. I did have other examples, but I can't think of them right now!
I'm not sure if there is a word describing this phenomenon, but I just thought I'd ask.
Separate names with a comma.
