It works also in Finnish. Grammar allows infinite number of substantives. There are many insane examples made to be examples but longest word actually used may be "lentokonesuihkuturbiinimoottoriapumekaanikkoaliupseerioppilas", which means "airplane jet turbine engine auxiliary mechanic non-commissioned officer student". Another option is to put insane number of suffixes, but then even Finns have to draw logic chart to understand the word.

The best thing was in '90's to ask for foreign Languages... the most teens get something with 4+, but there where some exotics too like Loglan, Assembler or BASIC and PASCAL and the best they counted:D

Aerospace is a little hard, sometimes i write Areo instead of Aero. Hard to see a difference.
