There is no question that these are legitimate words, but how many of these would you hear in a conversation, unless that conversation was among physicists, physicians, or pharmacists?

"Hey Mel, Long time. How's things at the mine?"

"Hey Joe, it's OK. Some of the old timers are talking strike, but I think their just trying to bust the chops of the new antidisestablishmentarianism managers. We sure miss you in the hole. Sorry to hear about the pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis."

"Yeah, it's a bitch. I heard I could use paradimethylaminobenzaldehydes as a treatment, but that turned out to be just floccinaucinihilipilification. "

"I use prevention. I take a couple of capsules of three-(four-amino-two-methylpyrimidyl-five-methyl)-four-methyl-five-beta-hydroxyethylthiazolium each day. I don't know, but I think it helps."

"Couldn't hurt, by the way. How's the wife?"

"Mary? She's supercalifragilisticexpealidocious!"

"Glad to hear it. Take care now."

"Later"
