In such sentences, the word there carries very little stress and more attention is paid to what comes after it.

    7. The verb following there is singular or plural according to the number of the subject that follows the verb:There is a message for you. There are patients in the waiting room.With compound subjects in which all the coordinate words are singular, a singular verb often occurs, although the plural may also be used:There was(or were) a horse and a cow in the pasture. When a compound subject contains both singular and plural words, the verb usually agrees with the subject closest to the verb, although a plural verb sometimes occurs regardless, especially if the compound has more than two elements:There were staff meetings and a press conference daily. There was(or were) a glass, two plates, two cups, and a teapot on the shelf.11. It is nonstandard usage to place there between a demonstrative adjective and the noun it modifies:that there car.The same is true of here:these here nails.Placed after the noun, both there and here are entirely standard:that car there; these nails here.
