Zenzizenzizenzic is the eighth power or exponent of a number. For example the zenzizenzizenzic of 2 is 256. This tongue twister was derived from the German word 'Zenzic' which means squared. Zenzizenzic means fourth power. So Zenzizenzizenzic refers to the eigth power. This term was coined & suggested by Robert Recorde, who seems to be the flavour of the day at The Hold All. Picked from wikipedia.
