@crystaltch: thanks, I have another question about "there is/are". Do you know how to use it while I wanna describe something in somewhere with some status. Ex: there are some words losing in the paper. Is it correct?
@allenazaaza i believe you want to say that "there are some words missing from the paper." right? Back to the basics, "is" is used for singular noun and "are" is used for plural noun. So using the example from your question, if you only want to refer to 1 american, you would say "there is an american stanging over there." and if one word is missing you would say "there is a word missing from the paper." hope it helps!
