I would recommend using linguex.sty instead of lingmacros.

To make the counters the same, add the following to your preamble 
(using linguex).

\let\c at ExNo=\c at equation

Then you can intersperse equations and example sentences.

If you want to continue to use lingmacros, you can make the 
lingmacros counter use the equation counter in the same way:

\let\c at enums=\c at equation

However, because lingmacros uses a regular list, it indents the 
number, and you'd need to mess around
to get the numbers to line up (so that your example numbers are 
indented the same distance as your equation numbers.)

In principle you could do this with:


But this will have the effect of making all lists have this indent, 
which may not be what you want, if you have other 
itemize/enumerate/description lists.

This is why using linguex would probably be easier.
