Closed question
Question about English (US)

Do you call it "wake up", "awake" or "awaken" when you finish sleeping and recover consciousness regardless of your intention?
Do you say, "I woke up three o'clock " in both cases that you set an alarm to get up at the time and that you accidentally woke up although you wanted to sleep until seven o'clock?
I asked this question because we make a distinction between intentional and unintentional waking up and use different verbs for them i Japanese .
