The actual word for any animal or human who is active during the day and sleeps during the night.
Person 1: Haha dude, your sleeping habits are so weird. I'm just dayturnal.
Person 2: What the fuck is that?
Person 1: It means I sleep in the night and am active during the day. I saw it on Urban Dictionary, it was the word of the day!
Person 2: There's already a word for that fuckwit, it's called "diurnal." You can't just make up words that already exist. I guess Urban Dictionary is administrated by retards.

The opposite of nocturnal; by day.
Most people are diurnal, although some people are like night-owls and are nocturnal.
