Is it correct to say "There's more funds for each child."?
I was watching an episode from Top Notch and that man said the sentence above. I know the word "funds" is plural and it's countable, shouldn't it be "There are more funds for each child."?
NOT A TEACHER
I think that native speakers accept "There's more funds" in informal English for at least two reasons:
1. It takes too much time to say "There are more funds."
2. It is too difficult to pronounce the contraction: "There're more funds."
(Of course, native speakers do NOT accept "There is more funds.")
