    i love that word! i believe it is the longest word in english language.
    it's not hard to pronounce, though:

    pneumono-ultra-microscopic-silico-volcano-coniosis.

    see? just words we mostly know already.

    paraskevidekatriaphobia

    May not be a diagnosis but is a phobia. Will this count?
