Which of these sentences is correct?
- Here are Mrs. Johnson and her husband.
- Here is Mrs. Johnson and her husband.
Both are listed as correct in an English textbook - but is that really the truth?
EDIT: Thanks a lot for the quick replies — it's much appreciated. I'm not a native speaker but when I hear: "Here are Mrs. Johnson and her husband" it just sounds wrong. Doesn't it sound a lot better with "Here is Mrs. Johnson"?
