What range of time can I use when saying "It's morning already, please get up" and "It's night already, please go to bed"?

Chatgpt says

When you say "It's morning already, please get up," you are typically referring to the early hours of the day, which usually range from around 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM, depending on individual schedules and lifestyles.

Similarly, when you say "It's night already, please go to bed," you are typically referring to the later hours of the day, which usually range from around 8:00 PM to 12:00 AM, depending on individual schedules and lifestyles.

Now is 5am or 11 am, can I say "It's morning already, please get up"?

Now is 7pm, can I say "It's night already, please go to bed"?

• This depends at least somewhat on when daybreak and nightfall occur. 7pm may or may not be nighttime depending on your location and time of year, and you of course would not say it's night if the sun is still up. Jun 27 at 14:14
• Most Anglophones live at latitudes where there's considerable variation in the hours of light or darkness through the year, so we don't normally use light, morning, dark, night as per OP's examples. We usually say It's late! - which is relative to (constant) clock time, not (variable) "sun time". Today, only low-tech farm workers are likely to hear It's light already! Time to get up! You wouldn't often say It's dark already. Time to go to bed. In Scotland it might be dark before children have had their tea, so it's a bit mean to pack them off to bed hungry! Jun 27 at 14:27
• Are you asking what constitutes the morning and night? You should be able to get that from a dictionary. There's nothing in these phrases that is non-standard. Note that ChatGPT is just a program that generates random strings of words according to a probabilistic algorithm and doesn't know anything. Jun 27 at 15:07
• We don't use those;. We say bedtime and time to get up. Jun 27 at 15:09
