    Re: what's the difference between carry and take

    Take means: Take something or somebody with oneself somewhere
    e.g. Take these letters to the boss

    Carry means: Move while supporting, either in a vehicle or in one's hands or on one's body. e.g. Carry the suitcases to the car

    Please notice that often you may interchangeably use the words:
    Carry the suitcases to the car
    Take the suitcases to the car

    Carry the dishes to the table
    Take the dishes to the table

    Also note: When something is 'small' and emphasis is on 'movement' NOT on weight, you use 'take'. Oppositely, when emphasis is on 'weight', you use carry.
    For this reason, (usually) NOT Carry these letters to your boss; rather,
    Take these letters to your boss.
