Seems not obviously attested in use as opposed to mention. sesquipedalophobia at OneLook Dictionary Search. Note that I do not request that properly formatted quotations are added to mainspace or citationspace--although that is ideal; I request that at least the text of the quotations is placed here, with a link to the source of the quotation. --Dan Polansky (talk) 06:53, 11 January 2014 (UTC), ,
- Are we allowing things like "She believed that I had sesquipedalophobia - the fear of long words" (second page of gbook results). If we are, I can find three cites in the first three pages of gbook results. If we are not then hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia should probably also be nominated as all its cites are in that vain. SpinningSpark 11:07, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
