Stewardesses - Longest English word typed on QWERTY keyboard using only the left hand

Using the QWERTY keyboard, the longest English word that you can type only with the left hand is “stewardesses“. The QWERTY layout was designed primarily to prevent jamming in typewriters during bouts of fast typing. It is generally considered to be more difficult to use than alternatives like the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard, which claim less finger movement and a reduction in errors.
