    As indicated in the other thread and in the dictionary entries copied here, there is no compelling reason to translate "cheaters" exclusively as "Lesebrille." I would say that "Brille" would suffice, perhaps with the addition of (auch Lesebrille) or similar.

    #1Verfasserhbberlin (420040) 30 Mär. 22, 16:22

    So ist es. In der deutschen Umgangssprache nennt man eine Sehhilfe grundsätzlich "Brille". Von "Lesebrille", spricht man höchstens, wenn man zwei zur Auswahl hat und eine davon sucht oder wenn man jemandem seine Sehschwäche genau erklärt.

    Als Stilebene wird fast durchgehend "Slang" angegeben. Die LEO-Auszeichung auf der englischen Seite müsste demnach Sl. sein (und nicht ugs.).

    Das heißt, wenn ich in einem Online-Spiel das Gefühl habe, der Gegenüber schummelt, und als Emoji den Smiley mit den Brillengläsern schicke, würde das verstanden?

    cheaters Amer. ugs.


    Brlle, f - auch : Lesebrille, f


    Dann wohl für die erste Zeile oben : cheaters Amer. ugs. - Brlle, f - auch : Lesebrille, f

    Den Zusatz "auch Lesebrille" würde ich weglassen, denn er entspricht nicht dem Sprachgebrauch und der Stilebene. Wenn der Amerikaner die unbestimmten "cheaters" im Sinn von "Lesebrille" präzisieren will, wird er - so interpretiere ich hbberlin in diesem und im anderen Faden - "readers" oder "reading glasses" sagen.
