Interesting. I'd never thought to check. But there doesn't appear to be any 26 letter words, as you said! Even google says so!

Longest word in the English language is 45 letters long.

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis (forty-five letters) is lung disease caused by the inhalation of silica or quartz dust.
