Terminology question


Adapted from the new SCHWALBE:

Kc8 Qh8 Ra1/Ka8 Ra7.

Evidently, the Ra7 guards1 against Kc7#, but he does not guard2
against Qh1#. Not surprisingly, us anal-retentive^W scientifically
precise Germans have two different words for "guard1" and "guard2".
Which I instinctively both translated as "guard", blame it on my
bad English. How is this difference expressed, if at all, in other
languages (English, French, Russian,...)?

I might word it: "Ra7 prevents Kc7#, but not Qh1#".

Isn't that the difference between guarding and observing?

Yes, that sounds like the right wording.
"Observing" was the term I desperately looked for.
(But note that the German article used
"Deckung" for guard and "Bewachung" for observation,
if I get this right - or do you mean it the other
way around? After all, literally guard=Bewachung.)
