    Talking 226-a sentence

    Hello all

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct and widely used?

    A big house is on the corner.

    I always use:
    There is a big house on the corner.
    Or:
    A big house is located on the corner.


    Regards

    Matilda

    I always use the first also Matilda. The second is perfectly fine but very formal, and usually seen in writing.

    Not really. Your two suggestions are good.
