the fact that elite means the best of the best and knowing french doesn't mean you are the best of the best.

Pourquoi dois-je être fière que je parle cette version de la langue française?

Here's the way I learned it:

déjeuner = breakfast
diner = lunch
souper = dinner

I guess it's just like the differences between British, Canadian and American English.


In France:
Petit déjeuner = breakfast
Déjeuner = lunch
Diner = dinner


Well... Actually, it really depends on where you come from!
I'm from Lorraine (north-east region of France), and I NEVER say "dejeuner" for lunch... My version looks more like:
petit-dejeuner = breakfast
midi = lunch
diner = dinner

lol, yeah, I do say "midi" for lunch. Like "Qu'est-ce qu'on mange a midi?", "Pour midi, je fais des pates et du poulet" , "Je ne sais pas quoi faire a manger a midi". But I've never said "qu'est-ce qu'on mange au dejeuner?" which sounds to me more like what we're going to eat for breakfast than for lunch.

In a part of my region (Vosges), actually, people use what mad says:
dejeuner = breakfast
diner = lunch
souper = dinner
And it sometimes creates confusions for people who don't know... I have a friend from the Vosges who invited another friend from Paris (I reckon) to eat "diner"... so my friend waited for her friend at lunch while the Parisian showed up for dinner! lol

I am from Lorraine too.

Déjeuner est le terme officiel, et je crois qu'on dit midi partout. Si on parle du repas en lui-même, c'est déjeuner qu'il faut utiliser. Midi est plutôt le moment de la journée.


Enfin bref, je comprends ce que tu veux dire ne soyons pas trop confusing.
