Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

Posted by at 9:33 am in Trivia | Permalink

Questionmark_130 Hi Welcome to Trivia Tuesday! A couple weeks I gave you a way too easy word puzzle, so hopefully this one is a little harder. Today's word comes from PegasusPoseidon2. (Thanks for the cool word!) Your challenge is to see how many words you can create using ONLY the following letters:

PNEUMONOULTRAMICROSCOPICSILICOVOLCANOCONIOSIS

Here are a few words to get you started.

MICROSCOPE  VOLCANOES  TROLL

Write all the other words you can find in the Comments, and challenge yourself to find long words. Anyone who can find a 10-letter word or higher will get a special shout-out from me!

    There are thirty-four words here that I made from those letters you put down, I have a few that are more than ten letters, do I get a special shout-out? I thought of all of these by myself! I think I did pretty well…

This is happening to my sister as well. Please help me.
