Especially for a single word. Even pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis which is English's longest word (according to http://www.hm2k.com/posts/supercalif...expialidocious
comes out to 22 cents per letter. That seems a bit steep for 1900.

ETA: Wikianswers has another word here: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Whats_the_worlds_longest_word
At 48,561 letters it's only .021 cents per letter. The decimal is not misplaced there.
