Translation:Ik eet brood in de middag.
Namiddag is afternoon...
In Flanders, perhaps. But in the Netherlands, "middag" refers to the period between 12 and 6 o' clock. See here for more (in Dutch).
But if 'middag' refers to the time 12h>18h. Then when starts the 'namiddag' and the 'avond' or the 'nacht' , Simius? I suppose namiddag=avond, from 18h till the moment we go to bed...?? Thanks, Lu
"Namiddag" is not used in (most part of) the Netherlands. "Avond" starts around 6pm and "nacht" around midnight (or around sunset, if you are talking about day vs. night).
I didn know this about the Netherlands, Simius. Very precious post, yours! Thanks again, Lu
I got a different suggestion for my sentence: Ik eet brood's middag. What does the 's stand for?
's middags is a remnant from the old genetive des middags and in this case means as much as in the.
