Academia, defeated, yesterday (Posted on 2015-02-26) Difficulty: 3 of 5
a. What is the longest English word that begins and ends with the same letter?

b. What letters do not provide even one qualifying candidate having this feature?

c. Same as a, but no repeated letters except the first and the last (none of the title's word qualify).

SmileS is the longest.  It is a mile between the two S's.

Of course you could write a word with very large letters to make it longer.  My globe has Asia written out 2500 miles long (to scale.)
