Ending a sentence with 'there'

Postby emancipation » Sun Mar 23, 2014 3:13 pm

I know of many Indians who end their sentences with 'there'.

For example:
1. A lot of improvement is there.
2. Today PT classes are there.
3. On Tuesday, the meeting is there.

I have no clue as to why they speak like that. Is it acceptable in English? It has totally confused me. :~:

Please help!

Although the first sentence is semantically strange, the other two are fine.

There is no rule against ending an English sentence with the word 'there'.
