        } else {
            return st2;
        }
    }

    LongestWord() {
        String word = "";
        for (int i = 0; i < stringArray.length; i++) {
            if (i == 0) {
                word = stringArray[0];
            }
            word = compare(word, stringArray[i]);
        }
        System.out.println("Longest word = " + word);
