If it is "are", then why is it not il y ont?


Because the 'a' from 'il y a' belongs to 'il', this means literaly 'he has there', but I think you should learn this combination 'il y a' as a standard combination.


I learned il y a and il y ont in college and thought i'd remembered them properly. i don't remember the construction above. thanks.
