More English Wordplay

Some weeks ago I spoke on the oddities of the English language and here is a quick thought to mull over.

Many pages have been dedicated to the longest and shortest words, those with the fewest syllables or conversely the most. For years I have tried to find the the longest English word which consists of just one syllable and have never found one longer (or even as long) than STRAIGHTS (nine letters).

Any ideas?
