Homework Help: English grammar

Posted by John on Monday, December 10, 2007 at 8:15am.

The words here and there have generally been labeled as adverbs even though they indicate place.
In sentences beginning with here or there, the subject follows the verb.

Ex) There (is / are) two pins on the table.

In this sentence 'two pins' is the subject of this sentence. As in a sentence beginning with 'here' or 'there', the subject follows the verb. As the subject is plural,we have to use a plural verb 'are'. 'Is' is a singular verb, but 'are' is a plural verb.

Is the explanation above grammatical? Are there any missing articles? Don't we have to put 'a' or 'the' before 'place'?
