singular or plural?
What would you say:
At that time, there was no shops.
Or, there were no shops.
Thanks for your help, it's really confusing for me.
At that time, there were no shops.
hallo iwent speak english very will
hallo mestar upstater > are you here ?
<<hallo mestar upstater > are you here ?>>
No -- I'm upstate.
You should say "there WERE no shops," but this rule is often ignored in spoken language. Although it sounds slightly weird, "there was no shops" is said frequently.
<<"there was no shops" is said frequently. >>
I don't recall too often upstate. Howerer, what you might hear is " At this time there's no shops.", for some reason.
