Yes, it does. :) - 193.84.186.81 02:46, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

huh?[edit]

This really is a strange one. It it used on official documents etc.? I think this needs more quotes. 194.83.24.240 14:25, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Things don't need to be included in official documents to be included here. Nothing wrong with more quotes if you want to add some. Renard Migrant (talk) 18:51, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Maybe add some information about it's problematic form?[edit]

I suggest elaborating a bit on it's unusual form and pronunciation difficulty, as opposed to the very useful "there's, and suggest ways to avoid this situation by using the full form ("there are") or using elegant way out: "there's" some". Have a look at this discussion for reference. 93.172.3.233 18:32, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

No because we document language, we don't suggest to people how to use it. However usage notes may be useful because of the pronunciation, as you say. Renard Migrant (talk) 18:53, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
