  • Analysis
    This phrase draws attention to the fact you are handing something over to someone else. Saying 'here you go' or 'there you are' is a response you might give after someone asks you for something, e.g. "Can I use those scissors? - Sure, here you go!" The phrase 'there you go' can be used in a similar way, but it can also be used to encourage someone, particularly if you are giving them instructions: "If you click on that it will give you a list of options - there you go!" "Keep your balance while you are cycling - there you go! You can do it!" 'There you are' can also be used colloquially as a way of giving reassurance or saying 'I told you so': "Don't touch that or you'll break it! There you go, I knew that was going to happen." These are all expressions you would use primarily in spoken English with people you know well or people you work with.
