I learned at yet another blog that there are two words longer than electroencefalografista. Professional translator Marie-Claire Cruz Schwarz writes in her September 17, 2012 blog post at Palabrasthat ciclopentanoperhidrofenantreno (a hydrocarbon) has 32 letters and hipopotomonstrosesquipedaliofobia (fear of pronouncing long words) has 33 letters. Neither of these incredibly long words officially qualify as the longest Spanish word because they are not in the Royal Spanish Academy Dictionary.
Gosh, these words are just as difficult to spell as they are to pronounce!
Sus padres le acuciaba para que buscara trabajo, pero no tenía mucha prisa. (His parents urged him to find a job, but he wasn’t in much of a hurry.)
El deseo me acuciaba. (I was driven by desire.)
Dieron la vuelta acuciando las caballerías con látigos y gritos. (They turned the corner hastening and urging the horses on with whips and shouts.)
Le acucia encontrar un nuevo trabajo. (He urgently needs to find a new job.)
Acuciar significa desear o apetecer con vehemencia. (Acuciar means to desire or to fervently long for.)
I learned my Spanish word of the day at Una Palabra al Día , which you can find athttps://unapalabraaldia.es. Acuciar is their vocabulary word for today.On Mondays they have words with definitions, Tuesdays are for words with Latin origins, on Wednesdays they present words with 2 or more definitions, Thursdays are for words considered adjectives, and on Fridays they give words that are not considered adjectives. You can learn so much at their site.
