    Ducks, Newburyport by Lucy Ellmann, a finalist for the 2019 Booker Prize, runs more than a thousand pages, mostly consisting of a single sentence that is 426,100 words long, appearing to hold the record for longest sentence. [Wiki]


    Let's beat this world record together.

    One word added per post.

    Copy paste the sentence as it stands including the word that you are adding.

    We can do it.

    Let's believe in ourselves.

    Edit: subsequent posters can alter previously suggested punctuation

    Edit: extra kudos for never repeating nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs. Don't worry, the English language has 1,000,000+ words

    Here's a thought, there is no reason to add your word to the end e.g

    The incompetent officials

    becomes

    The often incompetent officials

    This is my thread. I am very strongly in charge. I am in beautiful control. And, to that end, I have absolute authority. Which is as it should be. My power and authority are total. Everyone knows it. If posters do something different from what I have ordered, then it will only be OK because I will have authorized whatever it is that they will have done.

    as an aside I note we may only be able to get in around 10,000 characters so our objective will, likely, be unattainable? 🤔
