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'?

  1. Everything looks good, with a few exceptions:

    1. Remove the word "As" at the beginning of the second sentence after your example sentence.

    2. Put a space after the comma between "plural" and "we" in the third sentence after the example sentence.

    3. Consider removing the last sentence since it's repetitive.

    You don't need "the" in front of "place" in the very first sentence.

    Nice writing.
