    Three years time is not a short time.

    1) Three years time is not a short time.

    2) Three years time is a long time.

    3) I have forgotten everything in three years. Three years is not a short period.



    Are these sentences correct?

    Tufguy, if you find that you've repeated a word that isn't a preposition or an article in such a short sentence, you can almost always improve the sentence.
