    It is no use crying over spilt milk.

    It is foolish behaving like that.

    這種句型中的主詞it是虛主詞,後面的動名詞片語才是真正的主詞,文法上稱之為delayed subject(延遲的主詞)。

    It has been a long time coming.

    雖然符合這種句型,但因為 coming的語意不全,造全句的沒有邏輯。

    下面這種寫法才語意完整。

    It has been a problem being late for classes. =

    Being late for classes has been a problem.

    It has been the biggest source of stress handing in my assignments late. =

    Handing in my assignments late has been the biggest source of stress.

    coming要寫成片語the coming of xxx(如the coming of spring)或xxx's coming(如the country's coming of age)才會有完整的語意。只用一個coming,會造成全句的語意沒有邏輯。

    The landlady was keeping an eye on his comings and goings.

    這句的comings也是加上了determiner在前面,將coming加以限定。語意才完整。

    有關coming的用法,請參見Macmilland English Dictioniary for Advanced Learners 2007 edition p.290

    Not at all - Long time coming 是強調好像要到又不到,要來又不來的那種感覺. 而且絕對沒有那種已達目的的那種安全感.

    比如說:

    Same sex marriage law was a long time coming.

    是表示 同性婚姻法案 已(要過不過)被期待好久了

    而沒有說 是否已經被通過的意思.

    it has been a long time coming.

    加coming上去是什麼文法? 原句應該是:1.It has been a long time in my coming here.It 表時間 我來很久了!2.It has been a long time my coming.It代表動名詞my coming. 我來很久了!

    it has been a long time coming=It's been a long time to reach the objective.

    終於到達目標等到你想要的或早該發生的卻拖了很久目標才實現都可以用這句

    假設一對愛情長跑十年的戀人終於要結婚就可說:

    It has been a long time coming.
