    Haha. Yes, that's normal too. But what I mean is, saying supper isn't outlandishly posh or anything.

    Though tea refers to an earlier meal, while supper refers to a later one, I thought.

    I don't drink tea

    I would say, breakfast, lunch, tea, and then supper is something as a light snack before bed. Dinner would be on a Sunday

    I drink tea. I love tea. Especially earl grey. Coffee wins hands down however, when out and about.

    the word 'tea' is incorrect.

    http://www.chavscum.co.uk/forum/arch...php/t-308.html

    If you are talking about your main meal of the day then it is called 'dinner'.

    When has anyone ever said 'im taking my girlfriend on a romantic, candle lit 'tea' tomorrw' ITS DINNER OMG OMG

    In this order

    Breakfast (7)
    Brunch (11)
    Lunch (12-2)
    Tea/High tea (3-5)
    Dinner (7)
    Supper (8-9)
    the word tea in the dictionary has nothing to do with eating, only drinking.

    All my housemates think i'm posh; im from Nottingham and they are from Leeds and Wigan.

    I would say duvet, they would say quilt, I would say twitchel, they would say ginnel. How does this make me posh!? I really don't understand!

    Someone enlighten me please
    I say duvet and twitchel and I like to think of myself as posh (though I am not really)

    Quilt sounds posher than duvet.

    According to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, posh means Port Out Starboard Home. Although this is apparently untrue in real life...

    And there's nothing wrong with calling the third meal of the day tea. Even if tea is properly supposed to be about 4-5ish. I normally eat at 5-6, so it's too early to be dinner.

    Well **** me, I've probably never eaten breakfast by that definition.

    Unfortunately I have to spend the time before I head down t'mill licking road clean wi'tongue... or I'm still in bed. Either/or.

    Actually, high tea is eating and drinking. It's a light snack in the afternoon to keep you going. It often consists of tea (the beverage), and pastries/bread-type foods - scones with clotted cream, small sandwiches, etc.

    Who cares whether tea is only defined as drinking in the dictionary? Up where I am from tea is the meal you have in the evening and everyone knows it as tea.

    OP: I wouldn't say you are posh it's just different people from different places have different words for the same things.

    One of my housemates is from Cheltenham and pronouces things with a Southern accent which I would say sounds "posher" than the way I pronouce words but posh really depends on class.

    For me it's it's normal to say breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekdays and saturdays, and breakfast, lunch/dinner and tea on sundays. And I wouldn't say I was posh at all, despite being from the south!

    Basically, if you call lunch dinner, you are clearly working class.
