Hi all,
I'm just wondering what is the difference between 'how long' and 'how long time' in terms of thier meanings and grammatical features?
For example, Are 'How long have you been waiting for me?' and 'How long time have you been waiting for me?' different or similar?
Thank you for your answer in advance!
