comer vs almorzar
I had learned that comer means to eat and almorzar means to eat lunch.
Today I learned in Spain and Mexico, comer means eat lunch. so, in that case what is the word to just eat? Is almuerzo still lunch? and almorzar not used?
This is for Mexico
desayunar = your first meal of the day (7-10 a.m.)
almorzar = your second meal (10 a.m. - 12 p.m.)
comer = your third meal (2 p.m. - 5 p.m.)
cenar = your fourth meal (7 p.m. - 9 p.m)
Where? It sounds like Mexico or Spain. In Chile:
desayunar = first meal (7 a.m - 10 a.m.)
almorzar [comer] = second meal (12 p.m. - 2 p.m.)
tomar once = third meal ( 4 p.m - 8 p.m.)
(cenar [comer] = fourth meal (7 p.m. - 9 p.m.) )
Almuerzo and cena are the main meals, desayuno and once are (or they were) light. Due to cultural changes, those 4 meals have become 3, because "once" is being taken later and adding food, in what is sometimes called "once cena".
