There is a "minimum duration" to be classed as a river. However,the width, and to a lesser extent, the depth do figure into whether notit is called a river. If one can throw a rock through it, and isuniformly shallow, it is usually called a stream. If it is broad anddeep enough for easy handling of ships, it is a river, regardless oflength.
