This question already has an answer here:
I'm a soon published author going through my final edit of the book and I got stuck thinking about this one. I understand that when writing this you should type in "There are". When people are saying this though, they usually say it quickly contracting it to "There're". Here's the question: When I am writing what someone is saying, could I spell it as "There're", or will I have to type the correct way of "There are" while risking losing a certain "way of speaking" to the sentence?
I know some of the sentences above may have a slightly strange way of being put forth, but English is not my native language and it's getting late here. I hope you understood my question.
