How long is a spell?
You can have a short spell or a long spell. e.g. * My husband had a short spell in Egypt during the war, when he was in the army. * His brother had a long spell in prison for being a conscientious objector. However, a spell is usually a short period of time. e.g. We had a spell of bad weather during our spring break.
