The word 'Rice'

The word of "RICE"
The post of home page made me rethink that Japan is agricultural country. For Japanese, English word "rice" mostly implies before cooked, "polished rice".  
   These are some of rice related words;
*稲 'ine'  ・・・・  rice plant  
*お米 'okome'  ・・・・  white rice (mainly used for the one before cooked; polished one)   Fruit of the rice plant.  (hope  fruit is the right word)
*ご飯 'gohan'  ・・・・ This word can be used both 'after cooked ready to eat 'white rice' and  also simply means 'meal'.

                Thank you very much for stopping by;
