Why is Longus declined in accusative here? Isn't the phrase nominative, being a copula? Shouldn't it be "Longus iter est"?
I got it now! "iter" is a neuter noun; thus "longus" declines as "longum" for both nominative and accusative for neuter nouns.
Thanks, you answered my question too.
well done Noelia
It's not declined in accusative, it's in nominative.
But "iter" is a neutral noun. This means the adjective takes the neutral form which ends in "um".
Yes, I would also love to have this point of grammar clarified!
It's a long way, or it's a long way to go should be accepted as well
What a long strange trip it's been.
