Student or Learner
When using the word "no" to express something, shall I use singular or plural on the subject? For example,
1. There is no issue
2. There are no issues
3. There is no issues
Which one is correct grammatically? Thanks in advanced.
Much as it irritates my grammar sensibilities I also think that the grammar error in that particular type of sentence ("There's no issues/people/apples/etc." instead of "There're no issues/people/apples/etc.") often occurs in spoken English. Probably for the reason that there're is more difficult to pronounce than there's.
I wouldn't expect the same phenomenon with "There aren't any issues/people/apples/etc."

Q: saying " there is alot of stuff in my room must be cleaned by 7pm " is my usage of "there is" incorrect ?
coz what i know is, we could use it when we imagine the following noun as one thing even if it's plural.
