Slip Marker

Can you please help understand a pattern direction?
Shape Reglan: Place x number of sts on circular needle. Dec Row: k to within 2 sts of next marker. k2tog tbl, slip marker, k2tog; rep from * across all markers, k to end - 8 sts dec.
I don’t understand what is meant by “slip marker”. Does this mean I k or purl across the marker or do I remove the marker?

Slip marker just means to move the marker from the left needle to the right needle when you come to it. You do not want to remove it because you still need it for further decreases.

Thank you so much, 1st for your quick response, 2nd for the clarity of your directions.

Thanks i was trying to think how to do it.
