Good evening !
Is the following sentence correct ?
"There was dust everywhere, as if nobody had come in a long time"
I know that "for a long time" would be right, but is it wrong to say "in a long time" in this context ? I'm sure I've heard and read "in a long time" several times, but I don't understand when it can be used, and when it can't.
Does anybody know for sure ?
