'Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia' : Shashi Tharoor is back with a new word !

Sashi Tharoor, New Word Twitter

Shashi Tharoor, Twitter's favourite English teacher does have the habit of leaving people scratching their heads trying to decipher the meaning of his tweets. A day after confusing twitteraties with 'floccinaucinihilipilification', Shashi Tharoor is back again in social media with a new word,

'I'm sorry if one of my tweets y'day gave rise to an epidemic of hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia!. To ease the confusion he also wrote its meaning 'Don't bother looking it up: it's just a word describing a fear of long words', he added.

But #TheParadoxicalPrimeMinister contains no words longer than Paradoxical!, he tweet said.
