Well... depends on the word. Swedish plural can be a bit hard to learn.
In Russian the word for plate is taryelka. Anyone know if they are related?
I agree... definitely related with german "Teller". Question is... where does tallorken come from and what was the originary meaning?
The answer could be the latin "tālea". In fact, the first "plates" were likely pieces of wood.
I remain fascinated by the similarity between russian "тарелка" and italian "tarocchi" (="Tarots") though.
