What is the difference between 'dish' and'plate'?
a dish is a container for holding food, and it includes plates. A plate is a flat dish.
A dish can be any shape or size. It could be a bowl, a plate, even a cup or saucer. When we "do the dishes," we wash all of the things we use to prepare and eat a meal.
A plate is a flat dish from which we eat.
