Does the word ‘breakfasted’ exist?
(P. Vanitharathnam, Pollachi)
Yes, it does. The word ‘breakfast’ can be used as a verb, and when used in this manner, it means ‘to eat breakfast’. For example, Ananya prefers to breakfast alone. The children breakfasted on idlis and puris. The words ‘lunch’ and ‘snack’ can also be used as verbs. My wife lunched with her clients in a five star hotel. While watching the movie, I snacked on potato chips. Strangely enough, the word ‘dinner’ is not used as a verb. We don’t hear people saying they ‘dinnered’ with their friends.
