Mensagem:  The "Forty dollars is..." example certainly would make most grammarians happy. Myself, I see a tag price behind it.

"[The tag price of] forty dollars is..."

Or sense a hidden subject or part of a previously mentioned noun clause.

"[I say that] forty dollars is..."

Wait for further clarification.
