how is the difference between the dead and the dying?

how is the difference between the dead and the dying?
When I searched "deaf" on oxford dictionary, I also realized the dead and the dying.
But I can not image the context to use these words.
Pls help me explain them and give me some examples.
Thank you.

    My image for these two words:
    The dead: They died; they have died billions of years ago; they are dead.

    The dying: not likely to live any longer. He is dying.

    @tdtd071191 - I presume you meant dead not deaf?

    Dying is the process of death.

    Dead is the result of that process.

    Who said 'they are'? Do you think they are dying or they are still alive? @takafromtokyo :wink:

    If someone is dead, they had already died. If they are dying, they are on their way to becoming dead.
