German term or phrase:grossen Spiel
"Metrisches Gewinde mit grossen Spiel" - in description of various nuts and bolt screw threads. What is better - "high backlash", large backlash", "large play", "large clearance" or something else? And in the context of gearwheels would we still talk about backlash or would that be clearance? (e.g. Flankenspiel) Thanks in advance!
