There/ subject
Message from mohammad51 posted on 28-01-2020 at 19:49:00 (D | E | F)
Hello
Here in this page I uploaded its link
Said there = the subject
Then if it is possible according to what is told, ( there is followed by a singular noun or a plural ) it doesn't matter.
And there according to this concern is singular and it is usually followed by a singular verb.
Perhaps there were storms...... how it should be then?
Finally, in 5, the Subject is there:
Declarative: There was a storm last night
Interrogative: Was there a storm last night?

Hello
There is is usually followed by a singular noun.
There is a chair in the corridor.
There is a chair and two boxes in the corridor
There are two boxes and a chair in the corridor.

You can hear in colloquial English : There's two guys asking for you.

I can't say I understood much in your link !
For me, there can't be a subject because there is a chair in the corridor means a chair is in the corridor, a chair is "existing" in the corridor. There doesn't perform an action.

Hello; grammatically "there" functions as a subject in all sentences of this type, except that the verb agrees with the real subject.

There is(/are)
Is there?
There should be
Should there have been?
There used to be
Did there use to be?
Has(/have) there been?
Had there been
Were there
There was, wasn't there?
etc.

By the way, other verbs can follow "there", for example "There exists", "There comes a time", "There appeared", etc.

See you.

Hello
Thank you both
It is never a subject but perhaps people got mixed.
I also heard from one a teacher years ago.
