How 'bout Are here any vegetarians? or Are here vegetarians? I'm not a native speaker, but saying Are there vegetarians here sound like a nonsense to me
That's wrong sentence structure.
The correct one is "Are there ... here?"
I would say that "Are there (any) vegetarians" is the correct expression. Afaik you cannot leave out "there".
Coukd this question be translated: Are the vegetarians here?' meaning expected guests?
No, that would be simple "Вегетаріанці тут?"
E.g. В Україні є коти? = Are there cats in Ukraine?
Thank you, Sagitta145!
Is тут є always used as a question? "Are there x here?" Or can it also be a statement "There are x here."
It can also be a statement.
