  • Hi mr_write! Dmitri Borgmann called such words narrow words. I agree with you in not using the plural overnumerousnesses, which is sometimes called the longest narrow word. It's too contrived for my taste.

  • The longest word I can make without using either upper or lower strokes. (As with "q" and "t.")
