Articles/pronouns/numerals usage after there is/are
Hi everybody! Hope you can help me.
Rules concerning there is/are construction say that we use a/an in the singular, and some, any, many, a lot, much, little, two, three etc in the plural before nouns. However, these rules do not say that we ALWAYS use them. Most examples I came across contain the abovementioned articles or pronouns, but I found some that don't. For instance: There is milk in the glass. There are flowers and a box of chocolates on the table. Is there milk or juice in the jug? Do I get it right that it's ok if we do not use any of those words in the plural and in case of uncountable nouns? Are there any other bases for it?
Thanks a lot!
