Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is often termed as a nonsense word; however, Mary Poppins in the movie uses the word when she can't think of what to say in the circumstances.
The Sherman Brothers apparently took two weeks to create the word, resulting from a series of double-talk. The word can be broken down into separate parts and defined as being the following: super- "above", cali- "beauty", fragilistic- "delicate", expiali- "to atone", and docious- "educable". According to the film version of the song, "the words when said backwards, is read as "Docious-ali-expi-istic-fragi-cali-rupus". Whew, that's really something obscure.
