Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

That’s my new favourite word. I don’t know why, but I just love saying it. I guess the reason for my liking of this word is due to the fact that it took me almost an hour to figure out how to pronounce it correctly, smoothly and naturally, not like I’m trying SO hard to pronounce the word. I always knew this word existed but for the life of me I just couldn’t figure out what the word was. So I asked Rob (who shockingly knows this word) and right away he knew what I was talking about. He said “Do you mean supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?” I was like “!!!!! How do you know that and say it so quick?!?!?!?!” Needless to say he was very proud of himself that he knew the song title from the Mary Poppins movie.

The key to pronouncing this word is to break it down into a few parts as such:

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

(Okay maybe more than just a few parts)

These word means, as quoted in Wiki:

super- “above”
cali- “beauty”
fragillistic- “delicate”
expeali- “to atone”
docious- “educable”

Combined together, these words form “Atoning for educatability through delicate beauty”.

Okay Rob’s coming online soon and we’re going to work on the chapter together so I better prepare and stuff.

By the way, today is September 11th and also the first death anniversary of my grandmother. May they rest in peace.
