Dine Dine, v. i. [imp. & p. p. Dined; p. pr. & vb. n. Dining.] [F. d[^i]ner, OF. disner, LL. disnare, contr. fr. an assumed disjunare; dis- + an assumed junare (OF. juner) to fast, for L. jejunare, fr. jejunus fasting. See Jejune, and cf. Dinner, D?jeuner.] To eat the principal regular meal of the day; to take dinner. Now can I break my fast, dine, sup, and sleep. --Shak. To dine with Duke Humphrey, to go without dinner; -- a phrase common in Elizabethan literature, said to be from the practice of the poor gentry, who beguiled the dinner hour by a promenade near the tomb of Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, in Old Saint Paul's.
