ry commented on the word rhinoceri
derpface...somehow the "vi" became "ri" in my brain. I'm tempted to delete my comment. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing: contains-2x-r-long-i

I find it hard to believe the last syllable of ribavirin is long.

Oh, but I was referring to the syllable as spoken with long i, not the written form (note the diacritic). But now I've actually found one more: ribavirin
A priori, you don't really have a case. Arguably rhinoceri is a nonce word and has ri only once in the written form.Luckily you don't fit the territorial criteria of an authoritarian agriculturist with geriatric beri-beri.

this may be the only word in English that has the syllable "rī" in it twice.
