What do you call 12:00PM dinner time?. I say Dinner but a lot call it Lunch. A lot of people get Dinner mixed up with the word Tea which is evening meal. I think Lunch is too posh a word for my liking and dinner sounds better.
Sorry board. :P

I say it like this.
Breakfast, Dinner, Tea, Supper, Supper more of a snack like packet of Crips about 21:00 and just generally snack in-between all other times.
Breakfast when you get up. Dinner 12:00PM I have it at around 11:00AM as don't have much breakfast at 8:00AM when get up. Tea Around 17:00 and supper around 21:00PM.
We generally call the midday meal lunch and the evening meal supper. If there's a big family gathering we call that meal dinner even if it's at noon. Dinner for me at least implies the largest meal of the day and generally a little more of an event than just lunch or supper.
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
if you want to call the snacks in between those three something other than "snacks", go for it, but I've generally seen it broken up this way all over the world. Some more rural folks use "supper" to indicate a meal between lunch and dinner since they're generally working the land for 16 hours a day, and need something more substantial than a "snack", but that's about the extent of it.
I imagine "tea" in England, etc, is similiar to "supper" in the US, but I'm probably wrong lol
