I think you have a point. Language is very redundant and I think it could be that this word sometimes is used to simply mark the verb and make the language clearer. "Padding." Thank you.

Your first example speaks to the question, now that I added examples. Suppose I leave "er" out of "dui mian zuo." Would the meaning still be clear? And could "er" add a bit of the reason for sitting in a particular way, if you know?

I will not neglect to do so. On other sites one is generally advised to wait a day or two before accepting. Is this site different?
