Crazy long Russian words

with 2 Comments

We do a little proofreading on the side and occasionally run into gems like these 5 beauties:

exclamation_mark

 

18 letters: незаангажированный (unbiased)

 

exclamation_mark

 

Also 18 letters: доброжелательность (kindness, goodwill)

 

exclamation_mark

 

19 letters: сфальсифицированные (falsified)

 

exclamation_mark

 

23 letters: сервисориентированности (service-orientated)

 

exclamation_mark

 

24 letters: клиентоориентированности (client-oriented)

 

 

 

What’s the longest Russian word you’ve encountered?

To be fair, this is a combination of several words, but... ow!

    I recall a funny story I read about 25 years ago, where company names like the later in your post were exaggerated for laugh: НИИВТОРСЫРЧЕРМЕТБРАКМРАКСНАБСТЫДСБЫТЗАГРАНПОСТАВКА 🙂
