I'm not a native German speaker, but that's what Google says :) Kraftfahrzeughaftpflichtversicherung So the longest word to be found in the German dictionary is Kraftfahrzeughaftpflichtversicherung – "motor vehicle indemnity insurance". As Mark Twain said "a word so long it has a perspective".
Hey, yes it’s true that we have long words, but they are usually just different words, fused together. So these words are actually quite easy to remember if you know a lot of the shorter words.
The meaning of long words in German: It allows German speakers to be more precise while keeping their speech compact
It has very long words! Such as: Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz
