Middle English ther < Old English þær < Proto-Germanic *þær < Proto-Indo-European *tar- ("there") < PIE demonstrative pronomial base *to- ("the", "that") + adverbial suffix -r .

Adverb

there

  1. In or at that place.
    Note: In distinction from here, there usually signifies a place farther off.
  2. In that matter, relation, etc.; at that point, stage, etc., regarded as a distinct place; as, he did not stop there , but continued his speech.
  3. To or into that place; thither.
    Note : There is sometimes used by way of exclamation, calling attention to something, especially to something distant; as, There, there ! See there ! Look there ! There is often used as an expletive, and in this use, when it introduces a sentence or clause, the verb precedes its subject.
    Note: There is much used in composition, and often has the sense of a pronoun. See thereabout, thereafter, therefrom, etc.
    Note: There was formerly used in the sense of where.
