prato

EtymologyEdit

From Vulgar Latin *plattus, from Ancient Greek πλατύς (platús, broad, flat). Possibly arrived through the intermediate of French plat, or perhaps a semi-learned term or one used by mainly upper-class speakers in the past, and thus avoiding the usual sound shifts from Latin -pl- into Portuguese -ch-. Compare Spanish plato. Doublet of the popularly inherited chato.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

  1. plate
    1. a flat dish from which food is served or eaten
    2. a course at a meal
  2. (music) cymbal
    Synonym: címbalo
