I'm sitting here in my office playing an online game of chess, waiting for my opponent to make the next move.
An idle thought just occurred to me. So in English, we have words for all three meals ("breakfast", "lunch", "dinner"), but we don't have words for all of the meals that are between these meals. Think about this:
If a meal occurs between breakfast and lunch, we call it "brunch."
But what about a meal that occurs between lunch and dinner? Shall we call it "dunch"? Or maybe "linner"?
And how about a meal that occurs between dinner and breakfast? I know that we usually call it "supper" or "midnight snack", but that doesn't quite cut it. If we are going to follow the rules that we did with "brunch", shouldn't we call it "dreakfast" or "binner"?
Things like this make me feel that English is a very idiosyncratic language...
Some food for thought (pun totally intended), don't you think?
