These, in turn, link to smaller articles. Links to parent entries are marked with an upward-pointing arrow.
The entry headings fall into two categories: grammar terms (e.g. Present Continuous), where the first word is capitalized, and lexemes with peculiar grammatical behaviour (e.g. most), which are printed in lower case. The body of an entry describes the grammatical phenomenon in question or the behaviour of the lexeme. Examples of incorrect usage are marked with an asterisk.

Most of the entries are supplied with detailed explanations, comments, and illustrative examples, and many provide synonyms and antonyms for the headword.
LingvoUniversal can be successfully used to translate texts from English into Russian, and to write texts in English. The meanings are supplied with numerous examples which, coupled with the powerful full-text search facility, not only serve illustrative purposes but are an invaluable source of linguistic information.
Lexicographers have analyzed many other dictionaries and a large number of contemporary English texts to make the Dictionary truly comprehensive and up-to-date and have drawn extensively on the discussions at the lexicographic forums that were created with the aim of developing the Lingvo dictionaries: http://www.lingvo.ru, translators’ forums, and http://www.LingvoDA.ru, the forums of the Lingvo Dictionary Association. A substantial number of entries have been written or expanded based on the discussions at Pavel Palazchenko’s blog, or have been edited by the eminent interpreter himself.
