Breakfast and lunch are always breakfast and lunch. But dinner can range from dinner, supper or tea depending on who's saying it and what they feel like at the time.
Or if you're wierd like my flatmates you'll call it "din's" or "dindin"

I don't use the term myself though. I hate luncheons. Drinking Beverage

I will say that while supper is generally the name of the evening meal in my parts it is dinner for a grander affair, for example Christmas Dinner, which goes back to my "Dinner is the largest meal of the day" comment.

I always thought Luncheons were for meetings also? I especially associate them with work related lunches.

Wikipedia says the same thing as DarkLight.

I think people tend to use Luncheon vice Lunch to make it sound more proper, or to make it seem more important. Kind of the same thing for Deli/Delicatessen, the higher end delis, and more genuine deli's (that is to say that is all they do, not a store with a deli in it, especially you Yankees) use delicatessen to seem more like it is a more proper deli. Just my observation.

I stopped calling my meals a long time ago. They would never return my calls and I hate being given the cold shoulder.

But when I'm talking about them (the bastards!), I call them zakuska, obyad and vecherya. Or, to be more precise - закуска, обяд и вечеря. Angel

Totally different from Portuguese Blink

The call them pequeno almoço (in Portugal) or café da manhã (in Brazil), almoço and jantar.

Also: I miss Rio.

RE: What do you call your meals? (Breakfast, Dinner, etc)
I don't really have a "last meal of the day". I eat when I'm hungry, which tends to be once every two hours or so. When I was a kid, my parents always tried to set a specific eating schedual, but it never really took root. We ended up just eating whenever we felt the need to. Perhaps there's some bias at work, but personally, I think that's the most reasonable way to go about it. If your body requires food, I see no reason to "wait 'til dinner-time" to eat it.

In any case, my immediate family and I have always called the last meal of the day "dinner" (even if we never stuck to such a schedual). Which is odd, because my grandparents (on all sides) always called it "supper". The middle meal of the day has always been "lunch". I've honestly never heard of anyone calling it "dinner". lol

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.
