'stewardesses' is not in /usr/dict/words, though. neither are 'aftereffects', 'reverberated', 'reverberates', 'desegregated', or 'desegregates', all of which are also 12 letters, same as 'stewardesses'.

if you really want to push it, you could include 'desegregaters', which is 13 letters (although, the real word may be spelled 'desegregators', in which case it isn't left-hand-only). i was unable to find either 'desegregator' or 'desegregater' with Google, but i would imagine many English speakers would find it a grammatical word if someone used it in a conversation. anyone have the Oxford handy?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
