    short street

    Is it ok to say " this street is short, or this a short street". Is there any other better expression?

    I have a dim feeling that the link verb is missing in the second part of the sentence, or maybe I misunderstand something?

    No - you are right : This is a short street

    My mind inserted the verb automatically.
