A longer word,

hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia

supposedly exists, but Wiktionary comments

  • It is unlikely that this 15-syllable contrivance is ever used purely for its meaning. The term sesquipedalophobia is recognized in formal writing, while the four-syllable phrase fear of long words is certainly worth considering.
