Oooh! Cool!

algology -( )
The study of seaweed or marine algae


And here I would have thought it was the study of the ALGOL, the ALGOrythmic Languague, or perhaps the Demon Star, Beta Persei). Alas, it is not a JOVIAL topic . . . :)

The problem I have with the suggested GWotD is not so much its length, but the double «p». Incomprehensible and unjustified !...

I presume you are referring to the double 'p' in -sesquippedalio-, in which case I agree, although I do not feel that it necessarily increases the incomprehensibility of it all...
