Yours is which plate? - is it so wrong?

Do you say in such a way?


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

Well I do - perhaps that makes me unique :)

I don't think that this is so uniqe ;) Besides, you're are an English teacher not me.

Dish would or should also apply, I think.

Yes, it should work already.

Is talerz related to the German word teller? For some reason I love seeing words that are similar in German and in Polish ^^


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

Yes, and this word also came to Russian language as "тарелка", however the "r" and the "l" changed places

according to this, it comes from old German.

I am not certain about credibility of the source.

I've had it kicked out three times now, dish is the first thing that comes to ind and I put it in for the big void. I often forget the lesson part and go with what is most commonly used in everyday communication, that and how it's said. In Japan I knew what the words meant but often said it backwards from the way natives said it.
