This article (sich anschnallen) needs attention because:
Wouldn't it be better to give "anschnallen" instead of "sich anschnallen" since "sich" is already indicated by annotating the verb as reflexive? --dh 09:10, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
It has been added to this category for attention. Thank you for your patience.

I think "sich anschnallen" is better because then users notice at first sight that it's the reflexive meaning. But I guess there's a case for both solutions. Any more opinions? --Tosca 09:37, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
Sure, the way it is now it's better for users, but this is rather a workaround since the software should eventually be able to do that. --09:56, 6 February 2010 (UTC) }}
I also prefer "sich anschnallen", because it is more exact in that the definition corresponds to "sich + anschnallen", not just "anschnallen". It is also how it usually appears in dictionary.
Though, in German it is maybe not so crucial since the two words are separated. But in French "s'attacher" is not like "attacher" and will always appear as "s'attacher" in dictionary (though under the headword "attacher"). The same goes for Spanish "abrocharse", different from "abrochar".
IMO the main problem for now is that the search tool is far from wonderful. --Kipcool 10:44, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
