comment There is/are for multiple subjects
@RegDwighт I'm not telling him to rearrange the sentence. I am pointing out that the answer to his question about verbe selection is more apparent in the rearranged sentence. rearrange -> choose verb -> unrearrange with chosen verb.

@RegDwighт the meaning of the sentence isn't changed by the rearrangement. Both orderings indicate "those fruit exist [in that place]".

comment Why is there a comma in “Man discusses his, wife's experience”
@TimLymington ahh, you mean the difference in "his, his wife's" and "his, wife's". I thought you meant the still-there "his" could also be removed.

comment What is the role of the single quote sign in Hebrew transliteration?
I'm not posting an answer since I don't know the terminology, but it indicates a break in pronunciation. Shva has one syllable, Sh'va has two.
