supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

A fictitious word introduced in Mary Poppins. Thought to be a nonsense word, but it contains elements of real Greek and Latin roots:

  • super: above, over, extreme
  • cali: beauty
  • fragilistic: delicate
  • expiali: to atone, to make amends
  • docious: educable, able to learn

Put together, `supercalifragilisticexpialidocious` translates roughly to `atoning for educability through delicate beauty` or `atoning for extreme and delicate beauty while remaining highly educable`. ...
