    For me, it's there-ir and in fast speech it may sound just like there.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    'Ther' plus a schwa (for non-rhotic English). Plus /r/ if rhotic.
