Will resolve towards the argument that convinced me most. Close date will be in about a month or earlier if I'm convinced.
(Arguments made by yourself are heavily preferred)
A hotdog is not a sandwich for this simple reason: people don’t actually refer to hotdogs as sandwiches! If you asked someone for a sandwich and they gave you a hotdog, you’d be surprised.
In linguistics, this way of thinking about meaning is in fact the standard.
@Conflux Oops, hit send slightly before I meant to. Was just gonna add that in practice, definitions aren’t really the most explanatory way that we think about what words mean. We compare to other examples, and it’s kind of a feel thing. So it’s correct imo to say that a hotdog is not a sandwich even though it might meet some contrived formal definitions for sandwiches.

@NathanHuband is a Pop Tart also a sandwich then? https://twitter.com/matttomic/status/859117370455060481
A hotdog is not only just a sandwich, but deeper within its lore… a sub. One closed side of bread, not connected with the other, with meat condiments and often vegetables and other items within it.

A hotdog is a sandwich considering the fact that a hogie is a sandwich which is lunch meat and condiments inside of a split roll, the only difference between a hogie and a hotdog is the meat inside the split roll is cut in a different shape, and although being cut in a different shape that doesn’t disqualify it from being a sandwich because a burger is a sandwich and if you ask me a beef patty is definitely a different shape than slice of lunch meat yet they’re both still sandwiches! IN CONCLUSION a hotdog is in fact a sandwich it’s just a strange shaped one :) okay resolve market now
