Lesson 07.6: The verb υπάρχω, to exist[edit]

The verb υπάρχω, to exist, is used where we would say there is or there are in English.

Υπάρχουν αγελάδες στην ύπαιθρο. There are cows in the countryside.
Υπάρχει κανένα πουλί στο δέντρο; Is there any bird οn the tree? (lit. Is there no bird on the tree?)
Σκέπτομαι, άρα υπάρχω. I think, therefore I am.
