That depends on the role of L)MR in a sentence.

If it were a command, it would be "...CWH...L)MR..."

A declaration "...XWH...L)MR..."

An expression "...DBR...L)MR..."

A shout "...C(Q...L)MR..."

A complaining murmer "...RGN...L)MR..."

>From these and other examples, the phrase L)MR is not a 
verb, but the equivelant to the English word "quote" to put 
into words what is commanded, declared, expressed, shouted 
and so forth. An English example would be "As he sank in the 
quicksand, he shouted, quote, Get me out of here!"
