matutinal (muh-TOOT-n-uhl) adjective
Relating to or occurring in the morning.
[From Late Latin matutinalis, from Latin matutinus (of the morning). Ultimately from Indo-European root ma- (good) that is also the source of words such as mature, matinee, matins, Spanish mañana (tomorrow, morning, future).]
"In fact, the menagerie of breakfast icons in whom we put our matutinal
trust are a pretty fruity, nutty, and flakey bunch all round."
"If you live in a city neighborhood and go for a morning walk, you know
that one of the true delights of a matutinal stroll is the chance to
check out the neighborhood trove."
