Hello,

What is the difference between "That monkey is not longer wild" and "That monkey is no longer wild"? As far as I know, "no longer" is an idiom according to Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary online and is used correctly in the latter sentence. As regards the former sentence "That monkey is not longer wild",
I am not sure whether it is used correctly.

Thank you.

Best wishes,

Hello Bhikku,

This is another typo.
I've made the change which should be viewable on the next database update.

Thanks.
