    Question Far not enough

    Hi there. Is it OK to say, "Ten minutes is far not enough to present all concepts of my thesis" (when it is a formal presentation)?

    Thanks!

    If by 'far', you mean 'really', then no, it isn't natural, Nyggus.

    "Ten minutes is really not enough to present all concepts of my thesis."

    "Far too short" also works.

    I would also put "the" before "concepts".

    Is "far from enough" OK?
