Shashi Tharoor, Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram recently dropped a word from his Tharoorian dictionary 'floccinaucinihilipilification' that has left his follower to rush to the dictionary and many tried to pronounce it. But, we bet they didn't make it like how this 2-year-old toddler did.

Shashi Tharoor dropped the Tharoorian dictionary 'floccinaucinihilipilification' in a tweet while introducing his latest book 'The Paradoxical Prime Minister'. The 62-year-old lawmaker who has earlier tweeted the 29-character word tweeted a video of a toddler trying to pronounce floccinaucinihilipilification. And we bet you cannot make to any close to her.

“What a cute baby & what a game trier! I doubt I could have done that at her age!" Tharoor tweeted.

Apologizing to his fan for using floccinaucinihilipilification and leaving them in a wonder he took to Twitter and said 'Sorry'.

He wasn't done. Sorry, he said, if his first tweet sparked an epidemic of "hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia". He kindly added a definition: "It's just a word describing a fear of long words".

Tharoor's vocabulary is always something that fetches attentions of his followers. Thanks to him, we looked up "farrago" and "Lalochezia". In fact, he once used a difficult word to explain how he chooses words. Tharoor's Tharoorian dictionary is which had given us a lot of new and unique vocabulary. On Twitter user's take on that: "Haha...a clarification that needs a clarification!"
