'er' and 'daar'. It one 'there' indicates existence, the other location.

I don't see a logic of the sentence. Isn't the word 'daar' an extra? Thks

Nope! The first "there" in the English sentence translates to 'er'. The second one, translates to 'daar'.

To make it clearer:

  • Er ligt een bot! - There lies/is a bone!
  • Er ligt daar een bot - There is a bone there!
