As I'm sure you know, Swedish and Finnish also have agglutinative tendencies. :wink: I used to have a railroad timetable book which had a section labeled Valtionrautateiden henkilöliikenne / Persontrafik på statsjärnvägarna.

As I understand it, the Danish word "Speciallægepraksisplanlægningsstabiliseringsperiode" with a a length of 51 got an official entry in Guinness Book of Records in 1993 (I haven't checked though).

I have noticed a tendency now for people who communicate in text, to talk like a machine gun or teletype, without spaces between words. At some point, they will need to breathe.

I think crosswords will be our saving grace. They require words be in the dictionary, and be of sensible length.

Here's a true story, rather than a lame joke, although it could be both.

I know this Welshman that regularly wore around his favorite T-Shirt that said, "Whale Oil Beef Hooked."

(A couple of my favorite jokes came from him.)
