Very colloquial.

"Here is the things" ?

TDOL

It doesn't work as well without the short form. ;-)

Joan

When does 'wrong' become 'very colloquial'?

andy

Its wrong. Very colloquial would be: "Here're the things you asked for."

Red5

You do hear it quite a lot in the UK, though.

willbut

As a teacher, I would warn students that it would be marked wrong in most exams.

I agree with Andy

willbut

If enough native speakers use it, is it wrong?

Red5

Willbut, going by the same logic, if enough people break the law, does that mean the law is wrong?

Kriminal

Probably

ritchelle

Vidableek

Although it is wrong, I hear people use this kind of thing all the time. When seeing someone like a relative that they haven't seen in a while they will say "So, how's things going?" It does sound more correct than "How is things going?" but it is wrong.
