Neologisms

This page links to 2 remarkable articles by Dr Vernon Neppe.
 
The Neologism: A Personal Evolutionary Exploration.  This article  contains the longest published words in the English language.  One that is logical to use and has been applied in the systems context is Ethicospirtuobiopsychofamiliosociocultural (plus –ly; -ity) 2009 as in this article.
i.e. Ethicospirtuobiopsychofamiliosocioculturality and
Ethicospirtuobiopsychofamiliosocioculturally
These three terms are respectively 42, 45 and 44 letters long and are useful and comprehensible conforming to Dr Neppe’s requirements for new words.
 
A variant of this appeared in a closed internet discussion list in 2008 where Dr Neppe suggested
PDL variant: Ethicobiopsychofamiliosociospirtuocultural
