Insignifinesse

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /in-sig-ni'-fi-ness/

Sentence: Shouts of "Watch this, Mom! Watch what I can do!" could be heard repeated for hours on end at the community swimming pool, as little Jerome practiced swimming underwater, although all he was really doing was putting his head under the water for a few seconds and wiggling convulsively. His mother, of course, saw this insignifinesse as the makings of a future Olypian.

Etymology: insignificance - lacking importance or consequence (from Latin, in- "non" significāre "signal") + finesse - skill in handling a difficult task; an artful maneuver (from Old French, fin "subtle, delicate")
