Greetings and a warm welcome to you! Take off your coat and make yourself comfortable. (Oops! Maybe we should have saved that last sentence for today's examples!)
COAT   コート

A coat is a piece of clothing with sleeves that you wear over other clothes, especially to keep warm when outside.

A raincoat is a coat you wear to keep dry when it's raining.

An overcoat is a LONG, warm coat usually worn in winter.

(Be careful: In English we do NOT use the word "over" like the Japanese オーバー to mean overcoat.)

coat は外出の際、特に防寒のために通常の服の上に着る袖つきの衣類です。

raincoat は雨のとき、服がぬれないようにするために着るコートです。

overcoat は普通冬に着る、丈が長くて暖かいコートをさします。

注意:日本語では overcoat のことを「オーバー」と呼びますが、単に overと言っただけでは overcoat の意味にはなりません。
