Best Answer

hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia appears to be an invented word; a "neologism"; a word that someone simply made up. It is composed of four English words: hippopotamus; monster (or monstrous); sesquipedalian; phobia. Those root words suggest that it would mean "fear of words that are both huge and long -- verbal monsters" An American speaker would probably stress it as HIPPo-POTo-MONstro-SESqui-pedALio-PHObia.
