But that is not the point. The point is this formulation: a dinner´s meal ... What is that?

 

Me speaks "pigeon English".

 

Let me rephrase it:

The last meal I cooked was dinner. or

The last time I cooked, I cooked dinner.

If you type "eventually" in there you will see "finally". 

I dont know what happened to New British Users in here, cause whatever we say, they dont understand us. Old users always understand us easily....

 

 HarpOOn: I understand you easily.

So I hope you are using "old" to mean "been on the site a long time" rather than "geriatric and needing my pension soon"!! {#emotions_dlg.angel}

google "dinner´s meal" where you can´t find it. Now are you saying "a dinner´s meal" would be incorrect while the following can be OK for example?

Well, guys please don´t take it as a correction but my way of translating it:

2. It was a dinner´s meal when I cooked last time.


I suppose you remember what you wrote down yourself .

 

 

I said "my way of translating it". You have a problem with my way?

 

What is your point? Are you trying to show how poor my English is?

 

Of interest is this from today´s advice column "Ask Amy":

"I´ve been invited to multiple friends´ weddings this summer. Currently, I am receiving requests for reception dinner preferences with the choice of meat, fish, or a vegetarian option consisting of pasta.

"I am a gluten-free vegetarian. Most of my friends are aware of my aversion to meat. However, not all of them know that I am gluten-free due to health reasons.

"Knowing that the couples are under a lot of stress, I would like to avoid inconveniencing them with my dietary restrictions.

"I do not want to offend anyone by attending the dinner but declining the meal. How do I share in the nuptial celebrations without troubling anyone?"

We see that, for this enquirer, the dinner is the event, of which the meal is the component at which food is served.

"en sonunda" can loosely be translated as " after having exhausted all other possibilities"
