Nejneobhospodařovávatelnějšímu

Nejneobhospodařovávatelnějšímu.  This is considered to be the longest Czech word.  Thank goodness that all Czech words aren't like this.  This 30-letter word basically translates to "to the least cultivable ones" or "the least farmed".


I've never played Czech scrabble before but I'm sure that this has to be some kind of triple world score.

As ridiculously long as this word is, it doesn't even come close to the longest German word.  The German equivalent of the English "Association for subordinate officials of the head office management of the Danube steamboat electrical services" is a whopping 79 letters long.  I would hate to see a spelling test that included: Donaudampfschiffahrtselektrizitätenhauptbetriebswerkbauunt-erbeamtengesellschaft.
