Let \(M\) be a manifold with local coordinates \(x^1,\dots, x^n\) and let \(\xi^1,\dots,\xi^n\) be the corresponding natural coordinates on the fibers of TM. The author introduces special symplectic forms of the kind \[ \omega_L= \sum {\partial^2 L\over\partial x^i\partial\xi^j}\, dx^i\wedge dx^j+ \sum {\partial^2 L\over\partial\xi^i \partial\xi^j}\, d\xi^i\wedge dx^j, \] where \(L\in C^\infty(\text{TM})\) is a nondegenerate Lagrangian and moreover the tensor field \(S\in \text{End\,TM}\) defined by \(S(\partial/\partial x^i)= \partial/\partial\xi^i\), \(S(\partial/\partial\xi^i)= 0\). Locally symplectic Lagrangian manifolds \(M\) are such manifolds that are equipped with both objects \(\omega_L\) and \(S\). They are characterized without use of coordinates and more involved generalization in Poisson geometry is stated, too. No proofs are given.
