Brobdingnagian adjective, /brog-ding-NAG-ee-uhn/
Means Of extraordinary size; gigantic; enormous.
Etymology The word is appropriated from Brogdingnag, the fictional country of giants in Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels.
Example I had always been ashamed of my brobdingnagian hands which felt so awkwardly disproportionate to the rest of my body; that is, until the day I finally met the bathykolpian woman of my dreams.
