See the Longest English Word and How to Pronounce It

Just yesterday, a Facebook friend of mine, Jiffy Bond, shared the longest English word with me, and I felt I should share it with you guys too. He never taught me how to pronounce it so I dedicated my night learning how to pronounce this word, which I will also teach you in this post.
See the Longest English Word and How to Pronounce It
This word which is 45 letters long is referred to a lung disease caused by silica dust. When you inhale a large amount of the fine ash and dust, it causes a lung disease called Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.

Now let me break this word into separate words for easy pronunciation.
PNEUMONO ULTRAMICROSCOPIC SILICO VOLCANO CONIOSIS.
In some dictionaries, the "silico" is spelt as "silica", which I'm very sure is a way of making the spelling tally with the "SILICA" dust. So you might as well see something like this:
PNEUMONO ULTRAMICROSCOPIC SILICA VOLCANO CONIOSIS.

You can learn how to pronounce this word now. It is pronounced as spelt, but the "P" that starts the word is silent.
