Examples of sentences with there, hay and ay

One of the most frequent errors found in the Spanish language is in relation to the distinction of the words called homophones and their writing.

What is a homophone word?

It is a word that has a pronunciation similar or identical to another but whose meaning is different, as well as its writing.

The confusion of the use of the words there , there and ay is that these can be expressed equally in oral language, but the writing is necessary to respect the orthographic rules . Thus, each of these words is used in a different way.

Word “there is”

It is the verb to have but conjugated in its impersonal form. It refers to something existing . It can be replaced by there was , there will be , there was or there would be .
