I appreciate the citations, but is this a recent spelling of hours long or just a scanno/typo? Mglovesfun (talk) 11:05, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you are asking. The word seems like standard English to me, just like monthslong, yearslong, and so on. The words "hours" and "long" have been combined to form an adjective. It might be a typo if the two words were being used in their normal way without a space, like "Such-and0such was two hourslong," but the citations show they aren't being used that way. It would be better if the citations spanned more than a year, but it's clear that this word can be easily attested. Dominic·t 05:21, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
