Meaning of the Russian particle мол

Asked by John on September 10, 2020


I've come across the word мол quite a few times but I'm still not entirely sure how to use it. I'd be grateful if you could help.
Many thanks


Hi John,

Мол means "in somebody else's opinion", "according to somebody's words". For example,

Он говорит, что, мол, знает, в чём дело. He says that in his opinion he knows what to do.
