Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is the longest in the english language. It refers to lung disease contracted from the inhalation of very fine silica particles, specifically from a volcano. Originally it was a hoax word but has since been used in a close approximation of its meaning. Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu is the longest placename, but it is in Maori language, not english.
