Assunto:  Re: There's/there're
 
Mensagem:  i notice myself using there's and then going on to talk about a plural - but since there's is faster and easier than there're and it comes at the head of the phrase 'everybody does it' without concern perhaps it's a point which demonstrates the difference between the written and spoken language if it's written down it stays there as a mistake for all to see but if spoken it's lost in the wind before the phrase is completed
