-a lot of years o a long time?-

-a lot of years o a long time?-
Nota d'uso
Quando si parla di un periodo di tempo di molti anni, non si usa di norma la locuzione “a lot of years”. Invece, vengono comunemente utilizzate espressioni come “a long time”, “many years” o semplicemente “years”: Sono sposati da molti anni, they've been married for a long time (non they've been married for a lot of years); Non lo vedo da molti anni, I haven't seen him for (many) years.
