    eine schöne Bildersammlung, die so unter nur "clock" nicht zu finden gewesen wäre:

    und eine schöne Geschichte:
    http://whitewolf.newcastle.edu.au/words/autho...
    "...Peter Paul and his sisters had found another little hillock where, among some tufts of meadow-flowers which the cows had not yet eaten, were dandelion clocks. They divided them quite fairly, and began to tell each other the time of day. "


    Kommentar
    die Eingabe von "clock" ohne den Zusatz "dandelion" ergibt bei beiden Wörterbüchern nur Uhrähnliche Begriffe.
    Sobald man nur "dandelion" eingibt, erscheint aber auch der zusammengesetzte Begriff "dandelion clock".

    "The appeal of this plant I think is after pollination when the pappus develops the 'beard' or 'clock', for the arrangement is much larger than a dandelion's though at first glance duller and less dense, owing to the much larger seeds and fewer parachutes.

    But once you know the context is dandelions, then you can just say "clock". Perhaps it could be marked in some way to make it clearer ...?

    CM2DD, that's the problem, isn't it, the German Pusteblume needs no context whatsoever for readers/listeners to know what is meant, whereas "clock" by itself could be quite misleading:
    To rephrase my earlier quote: "Peter Paul and his sisters had found another little hillock where, among some tufts of meadow-flowers which the cows had not yet eaten, were clocks. They divided them quite fairly, and began to tell each other the time of day." Quite bizarre that way, or would you as an English native speaker not bat an eyelid at that?

    Not sure how you could overcome this possible problem, with Leo's bidirectionality: it would still be nice for people to know a) that you could translate "The number of blows required to completely rid the clock of its seeds" using "Pusteblume", and b) that you don't constantly have to repeat the word "dandelion" when translating "Pusteblume", but can miss it out after the first mention.
    I would guess most people know the usual meaning of the word "clock" and would be able to guess that it isn't enough to use it alone if there isn't enough context.
