Linguist marker

do you any idea of the linguist makers that writers used to maintain grammatical relationships?

The LingQ approach to language learning is based on an emphasis on listening to and reading enjoyable and meaningful content. If you do these input activities often, using the LingQ system, you will gradually become more and more familiar with the language you are studying, its vocabulary and how it is structured.

I am studying Russian, my 10th language and I have never found these kind of grammatical questions helpful in language learning. They are not part of our program.

However, for those who are interested I suggest either buying a book on the subject, or better still using google to find relevant content, and then using Import to bring this content into your study area. You can submit writing for correction on subjects of interest, or ask your tutor or the forum, as you are doing now.

We intend to make it easier for people to ask on this Forum to have their imported content recorded for them by other members, so this content of interest to you can become part of your learning process at LingQ.

i want to ask my tutor but there is not create new thread icon in it.
how will i post my concern there.

as per our instructor introduction, linguist marker is essential because it indicates the grammatical function of a word in a sentence.


You only have a tutor if you are a Plus or Premium member.

Terms and concepts like “linguist marker” are popular with teachers. I do not feel they serve much purpose in language learning. You just have to read and listen a lot to get used to the language and how the words are used. You should write, and if you have trouble using certain words, this will come out.

Often some aspects of the language that are explained using linguistics terms will continue to be unclear to you until you have had enough exposure to the language.

Most people have not trouble identifying nouns, verbs, words of descriptions, words of direction etc., in other words the functions of words in a sentence. They have trouble using them correctly. That just takes time, a lot of listening, reading, and eventually communicating in the language. There is no short cut.

Most of all you will need words, so work on your vocabulary.

In all my language learning I have never worried about linguistic markers. But I gradually start to notice things. In our case, with English, you no coubt notice that words that end in “ed”, “ary”“able”“ion” all behave in certain common ways.

At LingQ you can tag words that you feel belong together. At the Vocab section you can search for a list of words that all have the same prefix, suffix or root in them. Use LingQ to discover the language.

sorry for the typos.
