It is a long walk to school.

(What does 'It' refer to? What does 'to school' modify in the sentence? Is 'to school' an adverbial phrase?)

  • English -

    "It" is just one of those generic uses that doesn't refer to any particular noun. This construction also occurs in these:

    It's very hot today.
    It's raining cats and dogs outside.
    It's a great day for a picnic.

    Yes, "to school" is an adverbial use of the infinitive in this sentence.
