Journal Chacham's Journal: Puzzle: Longest word by adding letters to existing words 8

Quick question I've been toying with. Starting with one letter, make a word. Then add a letter to make another word, and continue until there are no more words to make. What is the longest word you can make through this method?

For example. Start with "A".


Alternatively, start with a word.

UPDATE: When starting with a word, it is to find the longest chain of words. Not the longest word. :-)
