Weird words in English language and their meaning

Continue reading after the advertisement...

There are words in English language that sounds weird but have real meaning .

antidisestablishmentarianism andPneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis 

These don't even sound like actual words and if someone were to tell about this to us, we would probably say it means nothing or that there is no such word. 
It does sound more like something a 1 or a 2 year old kid would tell or even like some sentence you were trying to say with food stuffed in your mouth.

But there are actual words. :) 

antidisestablishmentarianism -  this word has been cited as the longest word in the English language, excluding coined and technical terms. 
Meaning: Antidisestablishmentarianism is a political position that originated in 19th-century Britain. The position opposes proposals to remove the Anglican Church's status as the state church of England, Ireland, andWales

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis  - It is the longest word in the English language published in a dictionary, the Oxford English Dictionary.
Meaning: It refers to a lung disease caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust, otherwise known as silicosis
