I just did the 朝ごはん vocab lesson and have a question.
To me, “breakfast” is a little ambiguous:
A meal that is eaten at a specific time, ie. in the morning.
A specific type of food that is usually eaten in the morning.
The first thing you eat after waking up, regardless of the time of day.
So if I’m on night shift and eat my breakfast at 8pm, would I still use this vocab?
What about if I just fancy a bowl of cereal in the evening? I wouldn’t use it in this context, but I’ve been asked why I’m eating breakfast for dinner more than once…
My actual question is: can I set “morning meal” as a synonym for this without affecting my fluency later on?
