Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Darryl asked for sophisticated words designating breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I’m not sure what he’s going to do with them, but I advise restraint. Othrerwise, he’s going to sound stilted and pretentious; these words are obsolete. With that disclaimer, my conscience is clear.
Jentacular is an adjective for breakfast. It owes its existence to the Latin jentaculum, breakfast.
In Rome, prandium was the meal eaten at midday, so prandial will cover lunch, though in our day, it has become a rather generic term for a meal.
The Latin word cenatorius referred to dinner. The adjective form in English is cenatory, but the single instance given in the Oxford English Dictionary dates to 1650.
