Contractions. why is that one wrong? i know i use that one verbally all the time (there're pronounced as there) its basically copula deletion. so what does there're mean? there are, meaning there exists (plural)... question is why is the word there there? is it because its derivable from:
it exists there. it is there. there is it.
they exist there. they are there. there are them.
anyway there several ways to see it
