    Source Language Term

    um 270° drehen

    Correct?

    Es geht um Eulen:

    Eulen können ihren Kopf nicht - wie viele Leute glauben - um 360° drehen, sondern nur um 270°.

    Owls are not able to turn their head by 360°/completely - as many people believe - they can only turn it by 270°.


    Es wäre supernett, wenn mir das jemand korrigieren könnte. Herzlichen Dank!

    In English we normally say "turn through X°".

    Ganz herzlichen Dank, Trilingual, auch für die prima Links, die mir auch noch weiterhelfen. Aber mich würde trotzdem noch interessieren, ob "by" total falsch ist, oder einfach nicht gebräuchlich!

    "By" ist korrekt und gebräuchlich. "Through" ist korrekt, aber veraltet.
