It's the easiest word with more than 12 letters to spell, because it is phonetically correct.

Ermmmmm..... yeah? :confused: But what does it mean? :p

Super - extra, bigger, better, etc.
Califragilistic - ? Something about being 'Fragile'.
expialidocious - ? Something about being 'quick'... maybe.

As Richard Lederer wrote in his book Crazy English:

super- "above,"
cali- "beauty,"
fragilistic- "delicate,"
expiali- "to atone,"
and docious- "educable,"

the sum meaning roughly "Atoning for extreme and delicate beauty while still being highly educable."

I've never had the need to write supercali... before, but it's pretty easy since you just spell it how you hear it. :p
