German[edit]

I assume this was generated from a dictionary, so I thought I'd comment on the German selection for enhanced clarity:

Feld
means "field" in German, i.e. it is a "box" in the sense of an "input box" (think <input type="text">)
Kasten
used as a common word for quadratic objects
Schachtel
usually smaller and lighter, the kind of box a singular, specific object is in - e.g. a present or a hat
Kiste
a crate
Dose
can mean "box" in the sense of a socket or an outlet
Packung
means "package" or "packing", so it's a "box" in the sense of "cereal box"
Zelle
equivalent to "cell"
