There are such things as ghosts.
There is such a thing as a ghost.
there is no such thing as ghosts.
There Is vs. There Are
When choosing between there is and there are, you have to look at what comes after it.There is a cat on the porch.
In the sentence above, cat is singular, so it requires there is.There are many opportunities to learn at this company.
In the sentence above, opportunities is plural, so it requires there are. (Don’t let the word many throw you off—concentrate on the noun.)
- Use is with singular subjects and are with plural subjects.
- Collective nouns usually take is, but you can use are if you need to emphasize the individuals who belong to the group.
- Phrases like a number of… usually take a plural verb.
Are you conceding that there is such a thing as ghosts, even if ghosts themselves do not exist?
I am conceding that a ghost is a thing and that ghosts are things but that ghosts are not a thing.
Splendid, so there is such a thing as a ghost even if ghosts do not exist. There are fictional ghosts, dark matter aliens that could be mistaken for spirits, but there are not real ghosts. There is such a thing as ghosts, there just aren't actual ghosts therefor you lose end of story good bye that's it any questions?
You tried to troll a new user into an unwinnable position. Instead you had a grammatically impossible debate resolution for Pro to uphold.
