Absolutely, but apparently our American English speakers say 'plate'

Let's wait for them to get out of their pits

What about the likes of Googs, Yves, Felix, Conny and Muddy...?

S'il vous plait, Monsieur C! What are you on about?

Plait: as above, and shit rastas and some women do with their hair

Plate: Something to eat off

Plat: something to sit on (and meaning 'flat' in Dutch, just like how this thread is going to fall)
There's a big difference between kneeling down and bending over

Do you plat your hair or do you plate it Muddy...?

Apparently, our American friends do the latter

I've never said anything other than "plate". Eat off a "plate", but "plat" the hair.
