I forget the name of it, but I really like a german letter which looks like a capital B with no bottom. It represents a double ss sound, and in oldder scripts is found in words such as Tschuss.....

The longest natural word in the English language (aside from esoteric medical terminology) is floccinaucinihilipilification. Though there are other longer words, Webster does not really count these, as they were simply created to try and create "the longest word". This example, however was created by natural language and also has the most i+consonant repetitions in a row.

Another long word : pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicavolcanoconiosis, though I'm not sure if it counts (medical)

My personal favourite is antidisestablishmentarianism ( acouple of letters short, I know, but it has a nice ring to it)

Interestingly, this link describes 2 incredibly long words, one actually used in serious publication (with over 1000 characters) and another with over 100,000 characters (- write 1 word and use over 100KB?)

Here's the link to the full text of the longest word in english (and officially one of the most useless links ever appearing anywhere):

ths coolest letter is somewhere between A and Z, ive narrowed it down to that.

That has to be 26 (you used the word "letter"). If you had said: "how many possible 1 character alpha-numeric combinations...", it would be 36.

probably pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicavolcanoconiosis is the longest word in every language, it's also in spanish... but it's a latin compossed word, not an english one.

(The longest one I can think about in spanish is "anticonstitucionalmente")
which means what it seems to mean in english :p

Hipopotomonstrosesquipedalifobia

In english might be Hipopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia (one letter longer)

"La hipopotomonstrosesquipedaliofobia es un miedo irracional (o fobia) a la pronunciaciσn de palabras largas y complicadas. "

TRANSLATION-> hipopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia is an irrational fear to pronounce long and complex words
