To define supercalifragilisticexpialidocious definition we need to break down this 34 letters word to smaller words. After that we have to interpret the meaning of each word. And in the end to combine the meaning to a one understandable sentence. So here we go:
Super – On top.
Cali – Nice.
Fragilistic – Gentle.
Expiali – Forgive.
Docious – Learning.
So we end up with: “Leaning through something that is very gentle and beautiful.” But if you watch the movie you can discover that he supercalifragilisticexpialidocious meaning is actually: “something to say when you are speechless”. When someone is asking you to say few words and you just don’t know what to say, then Mary Poppins suggest that you will say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. The word appears exactly when Mary Poppins win in a horse race and all the media wants her to say something about her winning but what a person can say in that situation?

But in the film she spells it as dociousaliexpilisticfragicalirepus, and in fact she claims that she doesn’t spell it backwards but saying it backwards. Another similar song was Supercalafajalistickespeealadojus, which means the super song. Some claim it has the same meaning and in fact it was published long before the movie.
