Horizontal is parallel to the horizon
Vertical is perpendicular to the horizon

Landscape and portrait refer to the position of the paper.... you could have
a vertical fold on 'portrait' paper....

you could say vertical axis or horizontal axis...

Hot dog and hamburger reference a connection to shape -

I just demonstrate what I want them to do, ask them what they call it, and
reinforce vocabulary I use....
