    here are/ here there are?

    Do you always need there when you write a sentence like:

    Here there are many job opportunities
    Here there is lots of dust

    Thanks

    Re: here are/ here there are?

    The word 'there' is optional in those sentences.

    What is not optional is a final punctuation mark.

    Re: here are/ here there are?

    Oh, really? It sounds so wrong to me!!

    So, could I also omit "there" in a sentence like this one:

    In Ireland there was the potato famine.

    Yes, the punctuation mark. I didn't add any full stops.

    Re: here are/ here there are?

    "Here are many job opportunities" is likely to be said by someone who is physically pointing to or handing over a list of job opportunities.
    Here, there are many job opportunities" is more likely to mean "There are many job opportunities here" where "here" denotes a location.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
