Afternoon

Afternoon

[n. af-ter-noon, ahf-; adj. af-ter-noon, ahf-, af-, ahf-]

Afternoon is the time of day from 12:00 (noon) to -depending upon context- evening, sunset, or 18:00. Its use is often quite subjective.

Peculiarities

This should not be confused with after noon (two words) a translation of post meridiem (p.m.) as used in the 12-hour clock a time of day from noon to midnight.

In Australia and New Zealand, the word "arvo" has the same meaning as afternoon.
