Answer Please!!

Twyndyllyngs is the longest word in English that doesn't contain one of the five vowels (AEIOU). It comes from Welsh and is obviously rare, but it does appear in the Oxford English Dictionary.

It turns out that "twyndyllyng" (singular) is a 15th century spelling of the word "twinling," which means, in modern English, "twin."

Well yes, it is a short one for gymnasium but the oxford dictionary has gym as an accepted word.

Sync is not a short form of sychronization.
sync means: something that goes well (or badly) with something
Synchronization means: to happen at the same time or to move at the same speed as something
