Biega, krzyczy pan Hilary: "Gdzie są moje okulary?"

Szuka w spodniach i w surducie, W prawym bucie, w lewym bucie.

Wszystko w szafach poprzewracał, Maca szlafrok, palto maca.

"Skandal! - krzyczy - nie do wiary! Ktoś mi ukradł okulary!"

Pod kanapą, na kanapie, Wszędzie szuka, parska, sapie!

Szuka w piecu i w kominie, W mysiej dziurze i w pianinie.

Już podłogę chce odrywać, Już policję zaczął wzywać.

Nagle zerknął do lusterka... Nie chce wierzyć... Znowu zerka.

Znalazł! Są! Okazało się, Że je ma na własnym nosie.

—Julian Tuwim, Okulary

Czasem tak jest że nie widzimy tego co pod nosem

"Where are my glasses" should be accepted, too. I've never heard a native speaker refer to them as eyeglasses...

In one translation, using glasses instead of eyeglasses was okay. Now it faults me for not using eyeglasses which is not necessary in English.

'Glasses' is a common replacement for 'eyeglasses', do you think it should be accepted here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JoyceThomp6

Why do I have to say eyeglasses? I know which glasses we're talking about.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Keegan317005

Should 'glasses' not be accepted here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JoyceThomp6

Please, why not just say "glasses"? No one says eyeglasses. We know what kind of glasses you wear!

Why is 'glasses' not accepted?

Sound alright to me in the fast mode. Can't check slow mode, unfortunately.

I checked them all and they all sound fine to me...

doesn't let me say "specs" for glasses? :(

We don't really like accepting colloquial vocabulary.
